On Thursday 17 Nov 2016, the AKBCWA hosted the WAKER Gala Dinner at the Hyatt Regency in Perth. The Gala Dinner preceded the WA governments WA - Korea Energy and Resource forum on the following day and brought together leaders in the WA and Korean community for a night of fine dining, wine and networking.
Among our esteemed guests were Korean Ambassador His Excellency Mr Kyoung Ha Woo, The Right Honourable Lord Mayor of City of Perth, Ms Lisa Scafiddi and Western Australian Treasurer the Hon Dr Mike Nahan MLA, who all spoke on the night about the importance of the WA - Korea relationship and continuing to strengthen our economic ties. The Gala Dinner also welcomed a large delegation of Korean business leaders who traveled from the eastern states and Korea to participate in the forum.
The AKBCWA would like to extend a warm thank you to all of our guests on the night and our members, whose enthusiasm and willingness to network and welcome the visiting Korean delegates provided a wonderful atmosphere in the room. Business and trade relationships begin from people to people links, exchanging ideas and developing relationships and events like the Gala Dinner help facilitate those burgeoning relationships.
