Welcome to Adelaide and the 2019 Asian Physics Olympiad.
It is my great pleasure and honour to welcome you here, and for Australia to be the host to such a prestigious Olympiad event for the first time ever.
We look forward to sharing with you our rich cultural heritage and world-class scientific research facilities against the backdrop of South Australia’s vibrant capital city of Adelaide.
APhO 2019 will bring physics students together at an exciting time, where scientific discoveries are truly international endeavours, and new discoveries have no geographical boundaries.
This event presents unique opportunities for you to establish international friendships and future scientific collaborations, so I encourage you to make the most of every opportunity this unique event brings your way.
I wish you every success during APhO 2019 and beyond.
The Hon. Karen Andrews MP
Minister for Industry, Science and Technology
