Good morning. Welcome to High Security Printing Asia 2017 and, for those who have travelled from overseas, welcome to Melbourne, Australia. I take this opportunity to also acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we are gathered, the people of the Kulin nation, and, on behalf of everyone here, pay my respects to the Kulin elders past, present and emerging.

I am honoured to be presenting the welcoming address this morning, especially as this is the first time that Australia has been the host country in the sixteen-year history of the conference.
