Vice Admiral R. H. Crane - Royal Australian Navy

From an internal perspective, the RAN restructured itself during 2009 as part of its New Generation Navy program, a scheme that is developing fundamental cultural change in our organization with a view to the future. We experienced positive developments in the recruiting and retention of highly trained personnel, reaching the highest rates in 20 years as a result of a variety of changes, of which the employment outlook in the civilian sector was only one.

The economic events of the past 12 months, so far as they have directly and immediately affected the Royal Australian Navy, have not turned us from the clear path set out in the 2009 White Paper and our internal reform programs toward a maritime future.
