[AKBC event] From Adversity to Opportunity on Wednesday 22 July

The Australia-Korea Business Council is pleased to invite you to our upcoming webinar, “From Adversity to Opportunity,” on Wednesday 22 July. The Zoom webinar will be held at 9.00am – 10.00am (KST) or 10.00am – 11.00am (AEST).

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated geopolitical tensions within the Indo-Pacific region and revealed the inherent risks within supply chains. During these uncertain times, Australian businesses are increasingly recognising the importance of the long-standing and dependable nature of the Australia-Korea trade and investment relationship. Korea has emerged as an ideal partner to help diversify Australian supply chains and Australia can learn from Korea’s experience in managing trade disputes with neighbours China and Japan. 

Furthermore, Korea’s success at flattening the COVID-19 curve has highlighted their innovation capabilities and thriving health and biotechnology sectors. This presents exciting opportunities for future collaboration between businesses and research institutions including universities in the Australia-Korea corridor.   

This event will be chaired by John Walker AM, Chairman of Eastpoint Partners and Deputy Chairman of the Australia-Korea Business Council, and our speakers are Peter Underwood, Managing Partner at IRC Consulting, and Peter Kim, Investment Strategist at KB Financial Group. Following our speakers’ presentations, there will be a Q&A session.

The dynamics in the Indo-Pacific region are changing and we are at a critical juncture. Join us to explore how your business can enter, strengthen or broaden your relationship with the Korean market.
