Japan Symposium: Technology partnerships towards a more secure future

  • 28 Mar 2023
  • 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

The Perth USAsia Centre is pleased to invite you to its sixth annual Japan Symposium: Technology partnerships towards a more secure future, hosted together with the Japanese Consulate in Perth.

Technology is a key pillar of the Australia-Japan relationship and touches almost all aspects of cooperation: defence, science and technology, cyber security, critical minerals and climate change, health and vaccines, and space.

However, cooperation does not happen on its own. It requires dedication and focus from governments, close ties between our scientists, engineers and innovators, and regular engagement between the public and private sectors.

Join this important event to discuss how Australia and Japan can work together to respond to the technological challenges facing the Indo-Pacific.

His Excellency Yamagami Shingo – Ambassador of Japan to Australia
Justin Hayhurst – Ambassador of Australia to Japan (virtual remarks)
