Driving critical minerals partnerships: The emerging India-Australia opportunity
By James Bowen
Australia is emerging as a key critical minerals partner to the world. Smart policies tailored to key relationships will help Australia seize this economic and strategic opportunity.
Currently, critical minerals extraction is concentrated in a few countries, and processing and manufacturing largely occur in China. Australia and its partners and allies want to enhance supply chain security; improve economic competitiveness; and raise environmental, social and governance standards in the sector.
The Perth USAsia Centre’s series of reports by Policy Fellow James Bowen considers how Australia can best respond to these drivers. It explores opportunities, challenges, and policy priorities in important relationships, including with the US, India and Indonesia.
This report focuses on the emerging India-Australia opportunity.
