A MEMBER OF AUSTCHAM GREATER CHINA
The China-Australia Chamber of Commerce (AustCham China) was established in 1996 and is registered with the Ministry of Civil Affairs of the People’s Republic of China. AustCham China is the peak industry body in China representing Australian companies and has as its goal the advancement of the broader Australia-China business relationship through the effective representation of its 400 members.
We achieve this through building connections between our members and broader stakeholders in Australia and China, delivery of effective advocacy programs and provision of information and insights through our business events and online platform.
Importantly, AustCham China runs unique programs for students of Australian universities and recent graduates which provide opportunities for work experience, mentoring and cultural training. Our members believe in the importance of investing in our future business leaders, and this is a Chamber priority.
AustCham China maintains offices and personnel in Beijing, Guangzhou and Chengdu covering the North, South, and West China regions. With this network, AustCham China operates the largest non-government organisation advancing the Australian commercial relationship with China. AustCham China works closely with its sister Chambers in Shanghai and Hong Kong, under the AustCham Greater China banner.
