It has been a busy first month as Director of the KIC. I would like to thank all members for making me feel so welcome. I have enjoyed visiting a number of your operations to help grow my knowledge of local issues and discuss what you need from your peak industry association. I am looking forward to meeting many more of you in the near future.

Already Australia is the world’s second largest producer of lithium – used to power things like electric cars – and KIA businesses are looking to value-add by processing the metal and other critical raw materials such as cobalt, vanadium and graphite in Kwinana.
