In recent years, Korea and Australia have increased their economic engagement and their investment partnership has expanded. This has paved the way for closer business-to-business ties. Korean firms now view Australia as a reliable partner and their successful partnerships have encouraged Australian mining and energy companies to adopt an increasingly global outlook. Taking the next step in strengthening Australia-Korea business and government ties necessitates a closer examination of how they can work together within the Indo-Pacific region in which they are both situated.
This special report, edited by Kyle Springer, reveals Korea’s successful economic integration with Australia’s near neighbours in Southeast Asia and also its efforts with India. Korea’s intensified business and diplomatic activity in countries like Vietnam and Indonesia are welcome developments for Australia. The report also offers regional perspectives on Korean diplomatic and economic outreach, underscoring its positive contribution to economic development.
