The AKBC also seeks to promote technical and economic cooperation, trade investment, education and tourism between the two countries. A lot has been said and written in this publication about how mature trade and political relationships between the two countries already are, and it is the aim of AKBC to further improve the business environment to take this relationship even further. This is achieved internationally through an Annual Joint Meeting between AKBC and Korea-Australia Business Council (KABC), the setting of which alternates between Australia and Korea. Thirty such meetings have been held since the commencement in 1978. The current Chairman of AKBC is the Hon Mark Vaile AO, Chairman of Whitehaven Coal Pty Limited. The current Chairman of KABC is Mr Ohjoon Kwon, CEO of POSCO, Australia’s largest single export customer from any nation. In Australia, AKBC arranges meetings and roundtable discussions between Australia and Korea business to progress the relationship.
