Through an exciting calendar of networking events, seminars, forums and publications, ACBC Victoria provides members with the opportunity to engage with industry and government on the latest and most relevant issues impacting the Australia-China bilateral business, trade and investment relationship.

The Australia China Business Council (ACBC) is the premier organisation dedicated to promoting business and trade between Australia and the People’s Republic of China.
Founded in Victoria in 1973, ACBC has played an important role in enabling a dialogue between the two countries and has worked to ensure that the Australia-China relationship has matured, developed and diversified.
Membership offers you unique opportunities to keep abreast of developments, learn from experts and forge relationships with senior business people, decision-makers and practitioners across many sectors and fields in both Australia and China. These include representatives from some of Australia's largest multinational companies, SMEs and high-profile Chinese companies.

Sector specific groups covering the key ChAFTA sectors of Health & Medical Research, Education & Training, Agriculture & Food, Financial & Investment Services, Energy & Resources and Tourism & Visitor Experience were formed in ACBC Victoria in 2016. 

These working groups, access to which is open to members only, create forums for member representatives to share information, experiences, perspectives, challenges and ideas, as well as designing platforms to better inform businesses on growing opportunities under ChAFTA.

With groups having a specific industry focus, they are a valuable way to expand ACBC networks amongst Victorian businesses engaged in trade with China, long-term Chinese operators based in Victoria and those newly arrived. 

The working groups work closely with Victorian Government representatives on barriers and issues that Victorian firms experience when entering or operating in the China market and in relation to Chinese inbound investments into Victoria.
