Global Offices – Korea – November 2018

The Government of Western Australia’s Korea Office in Seoul has been supporting Western Australian businesses for over 14 years.

South Korea is currently Western Australia’s third largest trading partner and the fourth largest export market for the State, having been in the top five for two decades. In 2017-18, South Korea was the State’s third largest market for iron ore exports at 5.8 per cent of total sales, and also petroleum at 9.9 per cent of total sales. South Korea was Western Australia’s sixth largest market for agriculture and food exports in 2016-17.

There are trade opportunities for Western Australian companies in a number of sectors, including education, tourism, resources and energy and agriculture. Another key objective for Western Australia is to provide an investment gateway between the State and Korea.

In recent years, the cooperative relationship between Western Australia and Korea has been influential. More active research, trade and investment for the development of new technologies is driving a new growth engine on the Fourth Industrial Revolution era, in areas such as rechargeable batteries, electric vehicles, energy storage systems (ESS) and hydrogen energy.

The Government of Western Australia’s Korea Office helps Western Australian companies to access trade and investment opportunities in Korea.
