Australia's mining, technology, equipment and services at OzMine in Jakarta in April

Australia’s world-leading mining expertise will be on show at Ozmine 2013 in Jakarta on 16-17 April. Ozmine is Australia’s premier mining event in South-East Asia and will consist of a conference, exhibition and ample networking opportunities.

The event brings together key Indonesian, Australian and ASEAN industry and government players to identify and analyse major trends, opportunities and challenges in the mining sector across this fast-growing region.

Australia’s Trade Commissioner in Jakarta, Julianne Merriman, said that this year’s theme – Australia and ASEAN: Partnering for Performance – signifies how business people throughout the region are linking with Australian expertise to improve efficiency and boost productivity.

“Ozmine2013 provides the perfect opportunity to build  relationships further and meet new Australian business partner from a wide variety of roles in the mining sector,” she said. “Australia has a robust mining industry which contributes a sizeable 9% to Australia’s GDP. 

"Australia’s miners operate in some of the most remote and harsh conditions found anywhere in the world. This environment has seen Australia develop the technologies and services needed to work efficiently within these tough conditions,” she said.

“Australia has a strong presence in the planning, development and delivery of a wide range of world-leading mining equipment, technology and services designed to ensure mines remain productive, possess high environmental standards and contribute to economically sustainable development."

Indonesia and Australia have a strong business relationship, with Indonesia currently standing as Australia’s 13th largest merchandise trading partner
