The Australia-Korea Business Council (AKBC), together with our counterpart in Korea, the Korea-Australia Business Council (KABC), is pleased to announce the 41st AKBC-KABC Joint Meeting will be held virtually on Tuesday 24 November 2020 from 11.00AM – 1.00PM AEDT I 9.00AM – 11.00AM KST, featuring the very latest developments in the Australia-Korea bilateral relationship.

Australia and South Korea’s trade and investment relationship is developing rapidly. South Korea is currently Australia’s fourth largest trading partner and third largest export market and opportunities for deepened engagement are increasing. Trade and investment between Australia and South Korea in traditional sectors, such as resources and agriculture, are well established and new and emerging opportunities in health and biotech, new energy, financial services are set to increase, as both economies recover from COVID-19. Emerging opportunities also exist for Australian businesses seeking to diversify into new markets such as South Korea. There is no better time to engage with South Korea.

Building on the momentum and success of the 40th AKBC-KABC Joint Meeting held in Sydney last year, the 41st AKBC-KABC Joint Meeting will feature key themes of hydrogen and health and biotechnology and introductory remarks from both the AKBC Chairman Hon Simon Crean and KABC Chairman and POSCO CEO Mr Jeong-Woo Choi.

Together with key Australian and Korean leaders from the private and public sector, we invite you to join us to discuss the latest developments and trends in the Australia-Korea relationship and hear directly from leaders about the emerging opportunities from COVID-19.

Speaking and sponsorship opportunities are available. Please contact Liz Griffin for more information at lgriffin@akbc.com.au.
