Presidents Message

President's Message

Since 1973 the Australia China Business Council (ACBC) has played an important role in enabling a dialogue between our two countries. Through an exciting calendar of events, conferences, seminars and publications, ACBC provides members with the opportunity to engage with government and industry on issues impacting on bilateral business, trade and investment.

Over the past 40 years, the Australia China relationship has matured, developed and diversified. Today the average Australian household benefits to the tune of $16,985 as a direct result of our trade relationship with China. 

We strongly support the recently signed China Australia Free Trade Agreement and believe that it heralds new opportunities for Australian and Chinese businesses and deeper trade and investment cooperation. 

The Australia China Business Council goes beyond just gaining access to events and information, it is about joining a collective force of companies who believe in the opportunities and potential of deepening the Australia-China bilateral relationship for the benefit of both countries and their peoples.  

Our national sponsors are a critical source of support for ACBC National’s activities in Australia and China, including its events, research and government engagement activities.

We warmly invite you to become a national partner of the ACBC and look forward to working with you.


John Brumby

President, ACBC National
