The annual joint meeting of the Australia-Korea Business Council (AKBC) and Korea-Australia Business Council (KABC) will bring together leaders from business, government and other key institutions for the premier event on the Australia-Korea business calendar.

This year’s meeting will focus on:

  • strategic and institutional investment
  • energy, resources and infrastructure
  • food, agriculture and nutraceuticals
  • the ‘fourth’ industrial revolution (renewable energy, autonomous vehicles, medical devices, medtech and foodtech)

Priorities will be to generate new trade and investment outcomes, develop new business partnerships and R&D collaborations, and help shape government policy.

More than 200 influencers and decision-makers will attend this year’s gathering. Last year’s meeting included:

  • strategic, financial and institutional investors
  • infrastructure fund managers
  • developers with a range of interests, including construction and renewables
  • ASX-listed resource companies
  • commercial and investment banks
  • federal and state government agencies
  • peak industry bodies
  • leading university researchers.

This is a unique opportunity to mingle and connect with the who’s who of the Australia-Korea business world. The 2016 meeting resulted in more than A$1.15 billion of new investment in Australia-Korea business projects.

This year’s event will be held in Brisbane for the first time. It will also host the inaugural Future Leaders Roundtable for young Australia-Korea business professionals.


The joint meeting will include:

  • welcome dinner at Queensland Art Gallery
  • extensive speaker program
  • breakfast briefing with Australian Ambassador to Korea
  • Future Leaders Program for young professionals
  • business site visits
  • social activities, including VIP events and visits to premier tourist attractions and golf resorts
