Foreword from David McCredie, Chief Executive Officer, Australian British Chamber of Commerce
I am pleased to welcome readers to this guide on doing business in Australia that provides a strong and supportive document that will help you to understand the Australian market. The Australian British Chamber of Commerce is delighted to support this guide as the Australian and United Kingdom’s relationship begins a journey of change.
The Chamber has long held the position as the most significant bilateral business organisation between the two countries. It was founded over a hundred years ago, in 1910. The Chamber maintains the objective set out at that time to “Promote trade and investment between Australia and the United Kingdom”.
Today the Chamber’s network extends across the country with events and activities in six cities and an international program between Australia and the United Kingdom.
Our network of over 22,000 people across almost every industry sector gives us the strength and reach to help businesses connect with potential customers, distributors and with the local supply chains, professional and support services to improve productivity and increase the returns to your business.
With the UK’s recent referendum to leave the European Union, the Chamber is actively working with both Australian and British Governments and businesses to encourage more open trade and investment opportunities in the future. Our connections through all levels of government enable those messages to be heard clearly.
For those of you with your sights set further afield, Australia’s connections to Asia, in particular through the Free Trade Arrangements with Japan, South Korea and China, are significant considerations as you look to grow your business.
I look forward to welcoming you to Australia and invite you to be in touch with the Chamber as you look to enter the market.
Chief Executive Officer, Australian British Chamber of Commerce
