JOGMEC (Head office: Minato-ku Tokyo, President: Keisuke Kuroki) held the 17th Coal Investment Promotion Seminar on 27 February 2017 to discuss Queensland’s resources policies and investment cycle.
In order to further secure a stable supply of coal resources, JOGMEC invites government officials of coal producing countries or executive officers of coal-related companies to present at `Coal Investment Promotion Seminars` to provide information on coal policies and development of coal related projects in these countries.
This time, as part of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the State of Queensland, Australia and JOGMEC, we invited Mr. Todd Harrington, Queensland’s first Resources Investment Commissioner, to be the keynote speaker at this the seminar. Mr. Harrington gave an informative seminar titled “Queensland Resources and Investment: An evolving landscape presenting vast opportunities”. Over 40 attendees from trading companies, resources companies and financial institutions attended the seminar.
Mr. Harrington was appointed to the newly created position of Resource Investment Commissioner in May 2016. Mr. Harrington’s address covered topics including the current state of Queensland’s resources industry, the forecast of post-COP21 coal demand, recent trends in acquisition transactions, and much-anticipated information about the Chain of Responsibility Act and its Guideline. He also indicated that the recent recovery in resources prices has seen an ncrease of investment opportunities in Australia.
