On Tuesday March 10th, Australian foreign Minister Marise Payne was in Mobile to sponsor The new LCS30 that will become the USS Canberra when completed. Mobile area employer Austal USA is building the LCS 30 for the US Navy in their Mobile Alabama shipyard.
As the only reporter at the keel laying ceremony, BamaNewsNow got the opportunity to ask several questions of the Minister after the ceremony was over with.
We asked Minister Payne a couple of questions about Austal, a question about how the worldwide pandemic of Corona virus is affecting Australia and how they are dealing with it, and a question about the trade relationship between the United States and Australia.
Her answers to those questions can be found in the video below.
