WHO WE ARE

Our programme of events, public policy contributions and network of decision-makers provides our Members opportunities to further their business interests by connecting, engaging and influencing leaders and key decision-makers in both private and public sectors.

HOW WE DO IT

THE AUSTRALIA-UK RELATIONSHIP

The relationship between Australia and the UK is significant. We share both history and culture; government, legal and financial institutions; language and sporting ties. We have shared security interests and a significant bilateral trade and investment history.

Bilateral trade stands at more than $29.1 billion, Australia’s fifth largest trading relationship. The United Kingdom is the second largest source of foreign investment in Australia, valued at $515.5 billion. The total Australian investment in the United Kingdom was $350.5 billion the second most important foreign investment destination.*

This relationship forms the basis of the Chamber’s business model.
