Pacific 2013 International Maritime Exposition has been held in Sydney from 7 to 9 October to coincide with 100 years anniversary celebration of Royal Australian Navy. The biennial Pacific 2013 Expo is well recognised as the essential forum for the commercial maritime and naval defence industries in Australia and the Asia-Pacific. The subjects covered included shipbuilding, port management, maritime security capabilities, unmanned aircraft systems for maritime and coastal surveillance, marine navigation and training. The exposition also provides a major international showcase for Australian industry and the nation’s maritime and defence capabilities. In conjunction with the Pacific Exposition, the event included also the Royal Australian Navy Sea Power Conference, and the engineering and technology focussed Maritime Conference.
Part of the international conference program has been titled “The Phantom Menace – International Responses to Piracy”, which was dedicated to examine the methods adopted by the international community to the persistent problem of piracy.
