Breakfast Reception with the Senator Hon. Matthew Canavan, Minister of Resources and Northern Australia.


On September 24, 2019, AustCham Korea had the pleasure of hosting a Breakfast Reception with the Minister of Resources and Northern Australia, the Senator Hon. Matthew Canavan.

The Minister, who visited Seoul to meet with his ROK counterpart and a number of important industry groups, including the Australian Chamber of Commerce (AustCham) in Korea, the Hyundai Motor Company, the Korea Gas Corporation and Korea Resources Corp., to discuss the future of the energy and resources relationship, shared his insights on the potential of increasing cooperation and trade in hydrogen and critical minerals.

Minister Canavan pointed out that while Australia has been blessed by record exports of coal, iron and gas, “to stay in our world-beating position, we must invest in emerging opportunities and promote them to the world, including our close neighbours in Asia”.

We would like to thank Minister Canavan, the Hon. Ambassador James Choi and all our distinguished guests for joining us in the early morning for this fruitful discussion.
