Securing long-term project finance and markets

As the second largest economy in the world and Western Australia’s largest export market, Japan is critical to the vitality of the Western Australia economy. Building on the relationship between WA and Japan, we provide advice and assistance to Japanese companies wanting to invest in Western Australia. In recent years our offices have been instrumental in investments in a wide range of industry sectors in WA.

A key link in WA resource developments
Our offices provide a key link to Japanese investment in the resources sector. Over the years Japanese firms have made significant investments in leading gas, iron ore, salt and mineral sand projects, including the North West Shelf and Robe River, as well contributing to the viability of major developments coming on-stream over the next decade that include Gorgon, Wheatstone and Oakajee Port. 

In addition to signing long-term contracts for the resources that have underpinned the viability of these developments, they have made significant contributions to the technology, marketing expertise and equity capital required to develop and run many of these projects.
