Australia-Korea Critical Minerals Networking Event in Perth



The Australia-Korea Business Council in collaboration with the Western Australian Government and Norton Rose Fulbright hosted an Australia-Korea Critical Minerals Networking Event on the 16th of April in Perth. We were honoured to have the CEO of Korea Mine Rehabilitation and Mineral Resources Corporation (KOMIR) join us at our event. KOMIR plays an important role in the Australia-Korea Critical Minerals relationship, and is responsible for securing Korea’s supply of minerals. 


Targeted at our critical minerals subcommittee members, this event provided a unique opportunity for Australian and Korean attendees to “speed network. ”


Australia and Korea have a significant opportunity for increased partnership and collaboration in critical minerals - Australia has an abundance of resources, and Korea has an increasing demand for a reliable and stable supply of critical minerals to fuel its industries, particularly in batteries, renewable energy and vehicles. With the world decarbonising to meet energy commitments, the demand for Australia’s critical minerals and rare earths is increasing. 


AKBC will continue to support our members to facilitate trade and investment in the critical minerals and rare earths sector between the two countries. AKBC has a Critical Minerals sub-committee, with the next sub-committee scheduled for the 23rd of May. If you are interested in joining the sub-committee or gain access to our member-only events, please contact us at
