The Australia Arab Chamber of Commerce & Industry (AACCI) is the only national association for two-way trade and investment between Australia and the Arab League countries. AACCI is a member of the General Union of Arab Chambers of Commerce, Industry & Agriculture and has fostered strong links with the Australian State and Federal governments since it began in 1975.
The Arab League comprises over 400 million people over 22 country states, including Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
AACCI’s mission is to assist Australian companies exporting to or expanding into Middle East and North African (MENA) markets and Arab companies looking to invest in Australia. We specialise in providing members with commercial intelligence, business matching and networking opportunities. Our program of members’ events features Australian and Arabic speakers with MENA-focussed business expertise, creating great opportunities for members to network and gather up-to-date commercial intelligence on the Arab business world. Our goal is to expand two-way trade and strengthen economic and political cooperation between Australia and the Arab world.
AACCI has offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Canberra. Each of these offices manages an extensive member network and program of events to facilitate business networking at senior levels, and vigorously promotes trade through inbound and outbound trade activities.
