IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

The AKYPA Leadership Forum 2021 will be presented in a three-part virtual format in September. We have re-designed our original program to deliver the same outcomes, enabling us to emerge, grow and innovate together.

AKYPA Leadership Forum 2021 will bring together young professionals in the Australia-Korea space for a dialogue focused on leadership and the opportunities in the bilateral relationship.


Emerge. Grow. Innovate.

AKYPA will deliver its first national forum for young professionals across Australia who have a collective interest and passion for the Australia-Korea relationship. The forum will provide a platform for young professionals to engage in a dialogue focused on leadership and the next generation of opportunities in the bilateral relationship.

Korea is Australia’s fourth largest trading partner, and emerging opportunities such as new energy, defence and innovation offer increasing opportunities for young professionals to engage in the bilateral relationship. Building on the momentum and celebrations of the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Australia and Korea, the forum will feature presentations from industry experts and provides delegates with an opportunity to network and connect with other leading young professionals in the Australia-Korea bilateral relationship. The forum's goals are to develop leadership capabilities of this group, provide the latest intelligence on the trends and opportunities in the bilateral relationship and create a powerful network of leaders ready to advance our bilateral relationship.
