Oceania Director Germán Rocca spoke to the Forum’s plenary session, held in Melbourne 5 December 2016. The forum focused on the importance of collaboration between an organization like Crystal Lagoons and its governmental and non governmental stakeholders.
The aim of the Forum was to help identify opportunities to expand economic relationships, strengthen trade and investment ties, and explore ways Australia and Chile can work together to access new markets and increase participation in global value chains.

Over the two days, Ministers, participants, technical specialists and industry leaders focused on sectors of strategic mutual interest, including Mining and Resources, Infrastructure, Education, Leadership, Trade and Business Platforms.
