Project description

The project involves hosting an Australia-Korea sports diplomacy policy roundtable in Canberra, followed by two business and industry focussed seminars in Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane to explore sports diplomacy and its potential to advance our bilateral relationship. To date, commercial partnerships and competition between our two countries in sports such as golf, tennis, soccer, baseball and e-sports has played a critical role in bringing us closer together, but can more be done?
