Australia-Japan Business Collaboration Discussed in Darwin

Australia-Japan Business Collaboration Discussed in Darwin

A range of significant bilateral issues was discussed at the November meeting of Prime Ministers Abe and Morrison in Darwin. From a business perspective, specific areas of collaboration were highlighted; those marked for continued attention were artificial intelligence (read our recent in focus for more on this), the development of a hydrogen energy supply chain, health care and smart cities.

The annual Prime Ministerial meeting was initiated in 2014, when Australia’s relationship with Japan was elevated to the status of ‘special strategic partnership.’ The November meeting in Darwin also celebrated the commencement of LNG shipments to Japan from INPEX‘s massive Icthys project; a Japanese company’s largest direct investment in Australia to date.
