JOGMEC (Head office: Minato-ku Tokyo, Chairman and CEO- HOSONO Tetsuhiro) held Indonesia Japan Coal Seminar 2020 on January 23, 2020 to be co-hosted by Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Japanese government and JOGMEC have been conducting training courses to improve coal mining and safety technology in Japan and in Indonesia by Japanese experts in order to secure a stable supply of coal resources to Japan. We held Indonesia Japan Coal Seminar 2020 since we believe coal resources have been playing a part of energy portfolio in the world, under the circumstances ESG investment has grown in volume. Other purposes of this seminar are to have relevant parties in Japan and in Indonesia to be widely known coal policy of Indonesia and Japan and JOGMEC activities such as coal exploration survey and training courses, and to hope for the further development of both countries in the future considering environmental impact.

More than 200 representatives attended the seminar and had active discussion each other.
