In order to develop a stable supply of coal resources, JOGMEC hosts “Coal Investment Promotion Seminars” and invites government officials from coal producing countries, executives of coal mining companies and coal sector specialists to provide information on coal mine development and supply/demand trends.
With the goal of strengthening the relationship in energy and resources between the 2 parties, JOGMEC signed a “Memorandum of Understanding for overarching and strategic partnership” (MOU) with Queensland Government. This seminar is positioned as a cooperative activity.
The amended Mineral and Energy Resources Act, which was passed in the Queensland Parliament in November 2018, is a wide ranging review of the rehabilitation scheme which encompasses changes in the provision of rehabilitation funds and makes new obligations for mines to undertake Progressive Rehabilitation and Closure Plans. We welcomed Mr. Hiroyuki Kano, Partner at Clayton Utz Legal Firm and Director of Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry Brisbane to speak about the main changes in this Act.
There were many participants from Japanese trading companies, steel companies and so on who deal with not only coal also metals. In the question and answer session, there was further discussion on the “Scheme Manager” and “Non-use management areas” that are important concepts in the amended Mineral and Energy Resources Act.
JOGMEC intends to continue to hold seminars and studies to provide valuable information to secure stable supply of coal resources.
