Bilateral minerals and energy cooperation with the Republic of Korea

For over 30 years, the governments of Australia and the Republic of Korea (ROK) have engaged in close bilateral cooperation in the minerals and energy sectors.

In October 2005, the Korea-Australia Energy Consultations Group and the Korea-Australia Committee for Mineral Resources Development were amalgamated into the Australia-Korea Joint Committee for Energy and Mineral Resources Consultations and Cooperation (JCEM).

The JCEM Consultations provide a framework for the exchange of information and views on developments in the energy and minerals field including trade, investment, technology and policy consultations. The consultations provide an opportunity to develop a better understanding of the latest developments in the resources and energy sectors in each country.

The latest (27th) JCEM Consultations were held in Sydney, Australia on 10 April 2014.

The next meeting of the Australia-Korea Joint Committee on Energy & Minerals Consultation and Cooperation is expected to be held in mid-October in Korea (TBC).
