Australian Water Association in Korea
Australia and Korea share many common challenges when it comes to safe, secure, sustainable and efficient water and wastewater management. Through sharing of experiences and building closer cooperation between our sectors we can achieve more with less.
Korea is also a highly advance economy and one of Australia’s major trading partners. The opportunity for trade for mutual benefit between our sectors is strong.
In recent years, Australia has strengthened its trade and investment ties with Korea through the establishment of a Free Trade Agreement in 2014 enabling a shift in export development cooperation.
The Australian Water Association in partnership with the Korea Water and Wastewater Works Association
and the Australian Government have now commenced a series of initiatives designed to strengthen trade relations by connecting our water sectors and sharing of expertise and technological innovations in water. Water Korea’18 marks the start of Australian Water Association’s program to connect the Australian and Korea water sectors.
There is clear interest from the Korean water sector on Australia’s approach to water management as evidenced by the numerous Korean inbound delegations visiting Australia including a large Korean water delegation at Ozwater’17
with a combined 20 delegates. The Australian delegation to Water Korea’18
will continue this momentum to build collaborative relationships and strengthen trade and investment, by helping to improve the business climate and expand the scope of business opportunities for mutual benefit.
