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 $815 billion, Australia’s eighth largest trading relationship. The United Kingdom is the second largest source of foreign investment in Australia, valued at $574.8 billion. The total Australian investment in the United Kingdom was $507.4 billion in 2019, the second most important foreign investment destination.*
This relationship forms the basis of the Chamber’s business model.
We invite you to join our group of over 25,000 connections, at over 150 events nationally with over 8,700 attendees annually and our programme of bilateral delegations.
