India has a growing demand for critical minerals that Australia holds in abundance such as lithium, coal, iron ore, copper, nickel, potash and phosphate. India could secure supply of resources or enter into agreements, equity participation, or joint ventures with companies engaged in exploration and mining of critical minerals.
On 25th January 2023, a workshop was convened by the Critical Minerals Consortium (Monash University), MinterEllison and the Australia India Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of the workshop was to formulate a response to the federal government’s request for input into its Critical Minerals Strategy. In attendance, were over 60 representatives of industry, government, and research. The workshop considered four of the questions posed in the federal government’s Critical Minerals Strategy discussion paper, and the results of the discussions have been captured in the form of key focus areas and insights. This report summarizes the outcomes for each question considered in the workshop.
