According to The Australian Financial Review, Federal Resources Minister Madeleine King says Australia will remain a reliable exporter of gas to Japan, amid LNG supply concerns as Australia transitions to net zero by 2050.
After the former head of one of Japan’s biggest energy companies warned any disruption to the supply of LNG would have a “huge impact” on millions of customers, Ms King moved to reassure one of the country’s most important trade partners it was business as usual.
“Japanese investment helped build the Australian resources sector that has made our country so strong,” a spokesman for Ms King said on Friday.
“This relationship is not only crucial to the economic health of our nation, but to millions of people throughout Asia who rely on Australian resources to build their cities, heat their homes and help produce their food. Australia is a reliable supplier of energy to Japan and always will be.”
