Antarctic and Southern Ocean stories

Tassie shines in Japan

Premier Will Hodgman has returned from his trade mission to Japan calling it “an important opportunity to showcase the best of our state and support Tasmanian businesses in this key export market". He said key advances include a new Memorandum of Understanding between Tasmania and Japan to pursue research and field trials into Japanese vegetable crop growing in Tasmania. The trade mission also included discussions with Japan’s National Institute of Polar Research on the potential for establishing an office in Hobart and enhancing Antarctic and southern ocean research exchange. Local producers also took centre stage at FOODEX, which is Asia's largest exhibition of food and drink products, along with discussions about ways to promote investment in primary industries, forestry and mining. “With more than 80 per cent of Tasmania’s international exports in Asian markets - and Japan now our second largest export market - it is vital that we maintain and enhance our connections with this key market,” the Premier said.
