2019 Upper Hunter Economic Breakfast Series: Energy for Japan, China, Korea: Future coal exports from the Hunter

The Hunter would benefit from greater economic certainty. What level of certainty is possible?


Since 2002 the Hunter Research Foundation (HRF) Centre has run a dedicated research program in the Upper Hunter. Our insights are shared twice a year at our economic breakfasts. We invite you to join us at our first event for 2019.

Keynote speaker Tony Wood, Energy Program Director at the Grattan Institute, will consider Energy for Japan, China, Korea: Future coal exports from the Hunter. Is demand for Hunter Valley coal likely to go up, down, or sideways? Over what time frame – 10 years, 20 years, 50 years – might significant changes occur?

Tony took up his role at the Institute in 2011 after 14 years working at Origin Energy in senior executive roles. He has consulted the Australian Government on energy policy and was last year recognised with an Order of Australia for his contribution to this critical national debate.

HRF Centre's Lead Economist, Dr Anthea Bill, will help set your business compass for the year ahead with her unique insights on the Upper Hunter economy including business and consumer expectations. This will include the results of our Pulse Survey of local conditions presented in our latest Upper Hunter Region Economic Indicators.

Join 170+ other guests at this long-running series on 10 April. Be informed, challenged, inspired and 'connected'.
