He is also the first foreign leader that the country has invited since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, officials said.A senior presidential official said that Moon's visit to Australia is expected to help South Korea secure key mining products, such as rare earth and lithium, amid the pandemic-hit disruption of global supply chains.

Strengthening cooperation in the fields of carbon-neutral technology, the hydrogen economy, defence industry, space and cyberspace are also expected to top the agenda.After the summit, Moon will attend a state luncheon hosted by Australian Governor-General David Hurley.
