About us:

The Australian British Chamber of Commerce is a leading organisation created to facilitate the development of business relationships among companies operating in Australia.

The Chamber was founded in 1910, the same year as Australia sent the first High Commissioner of the new nation to the United Kingdom. In over a century since then, the Chamber has established a strong reputation as a body that facilitates business development through a range of networking activities primarily the organisation of events such as corporate lunches, private boardroom functions, and more relaxed cultural and cocktail evenings.

The Chamber has developed to further support bilateral trade by providing 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. These opportunities have complemented the growth and role of UK Trade and Investment, Austrade and various Australian State government agencies as well as groups including Scottish Development International.

Trade between Australia and the UK is highly significant to both countries. Two-way trade currently stands at more than $13.418 billion, making this Australia’s fifth largest trading relationship. Investments between the two countries is $714 billion. The United Kingdom remains the largest single source of inward investment into Australia, at more than $496 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.
