The ABCC is a leading organisation created to facilitate the development of business relationships among companies operating in Australia.
The Chamber has existed for 103 years and has established a strong reputation as a body that facilitates business development through the organisation of events such as corporate lunches, private boardroom functions, and more relaxed cultural and cocktail evenings.
Over the years, the governments of Australia and the UK have established well-funded organisations to promote trade, such as UK Trade & Investment and Austrade. The best way for the Chamber to further support bilateral trade is to provide opportunities for business people to be informed by and exposed to the ideas of successful leaders. Business relationships are developed at a personal level and the Chamber provides support for this process.
Trade between Australia and the UK is highly significant to both countries. Two-way trade currently stands at more than $28 billion, making this Australia’s fifth largest trading relationship. Investments between the two countries are in excess of $650 billion. The United Kingdom remains the largest single source of inward investment into Australia, at more than $430 billion.
More than 2000 companies from the United Kingdom and Australia conduct business together daily. A considerable number of these companies are associated with the Chamber and find its services significant in assisting the development of their business relations in this country. These companies and their executives are valued members and partners of the Chamber, actively involved within its network of influential individuals and organisations.
The Chamber is an independently constituted organisation operating in all states. It has a strong relationship with the United Kingdom through the British High Commissioner and the British Consul-Generals. This provides access to key officials both directly and through UK Trade & Investment.
