WA-Japan Conversations Series: May Networking Event with The Hon. Madeleine King, MP

Strengthening critical minerals cooperation between WA and Japan

Please join the Australia Japan Business Council WA (AJBC) at our exclusive networking event supported by Herbert Smith Freehills.

Featuring a special presentation by the Hon. Madeleine King, MP, Minister for Resources & Northern Australia, Commonwealth Government.

Australia has an important role to play in supplying processed green critical resources and energy to Asia as part of the global effort to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, reach net zero emissions by 2050 and avoid global warming post 1990 of +2 degrees Celsius.  Minister King has a pivotal role to play in the development of Federal Government policy for Australia to meet this immense challenge.  As a resource rich state, Western Australia is front and centre in this endeavour.  How the Federal Government acts has economic implications for all Western Australians.
