Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the quad has “a very practical contribution” to the Indo-Pacific region, providing vaccines to countries and supporting future technologies such as the clean energy supply chain.
“A practical initiative focused on 1.2 million vaccines is not only to obtain vaccines, but to use them as weapons, and the program we are running together is for those vaccines. We support distribution and administration, “he said.
“A great example of our region is all four quad partners who support vaccination in Fiji. [a] Although it is a small island in the Pacific Ocean, Quad recognizes its need and providing these vaccines in Fiji has really helped the country. “
Morrison said Australia “plays a greater role in the critical supply chain” of minerals, leading to the manufacturing and processing capabilities of users in the United States, India and Japan.
He also said the quad will promote the “Clean Energy Supply Chain Summit” in Australia next year, combining science and industry known to “transform the economy” in the Indo-Pacific region.
“The quad is a very practical initiative that brings together partners who care about the future of the area we live in,” he said.
