The purpose of the Symposium is to bring together a small group of leaders in the Australia-Korea relationship to discuss trends in the bilateral relationship and areas where the relationship can be enhanced, including investment, education, tourism and culture and also the role the future generation of business leaders can play as the future custodians of the relationship. Building on the success of previous years, this is the third time that this Symposium will be held.
