Tasmanian ACBC is a branch of the National ACBC and is dedicated to promoting business and trade between Tasmania, Australia and the People’s Republic of China.

Tasmania and China

The Tasmania Branch was formed in November 2014 by the ACBC National Executive, the local business community and the Tasmanian Department of State Growth in response to the expansion of Chinese connections.

Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Tasmania in 2014, and since then Chinese visitors and tourists to the state have grown significantly. China now holds the largest share of Tasmanian’s international visitor numbers (2017-2018). 


The State of Tasmania and Fujian Province have a Sister State agreement since 1981 which has led to cultural exchange and relationships as well as business and trade opportunities.
