Western Australian International Investment and Trade Office Network have supported a delegation touring South Korea and Singapore, promoting trade opportunities, attracting investment and positioning the state as a destination of choice.

Our global network of international offices located within key international markets across five regional hubs: ASEAN, China, India-Gulf, North East Asia and the United Kingdom/Europe, position Western Australia in a diverse range of markets and industries.

The Commissioners in the North East Asia and ASEAN regions supported Western Australia’s Hydrogen Industry Minister Alannah MacTiernan throughout the mission to South Korea and Singapore.

The mission to South Korea was an opportunity to attract investment into Western Australia’s renewable energy industry including across hydrogen production and downstream processing.

While WA’s presences at Singapore’s Food and Hotel Asia (FHA) Food and Beverage Edition exhibition and the satellite Regenerative Agriculture event supported the regions’ mutual interest in regenerative agriculture and showcased WA’s capabilities in food sustainability and strong supply chain.

This latest investment and trade mission was part of the Western Australian Government’s $185 million Reconnect WA package, assisting local WA businesses to rebuild international business relationships and supply chains impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a key economic development agency, the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation works with industry and supports priority sectors to diversify the Western Australian economy.
