AACCI has been active in NSW since 1975, and the local chapter boasts membership across a broad spectrum of industries from Bega in the south to the Queensland border in the north.
The chapter's office is based out of the Sydney CBD where there is a natural concentration of member companies. Documentation services are provided from two locations – north and south of the harbor.
Members are represented on an elected Management Committee which meets regularly to plan and organize events and other member activities.
The NSW chapter holds regular events to afford members an opportunity to network and to hear from prominent speakers with insight on Arab markets.
