Australia Arab Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AACCI)
Australia Arab Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AACCI) was established in 1975 as the peak national organisation for two-way trade, investment and relations between Australia and the 22 member States of the Arab League.
AACCI is a membership-based, not-for-profit organisation with a representative office in major Australian States. AACCI aims to engage, support and facilitate two-way trade and investment opportunities for its members as well as build cross-cultural awareness for business success.
AACCI is an active member of the Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry, the International Chambers of Commerce and the Union of Arab Chambers.
Over the years, AACCI has fostered strong links with the Australian State and Federal Governments, non-government and commercial organisations in Australia. AACCI also maintains strong partnerships with high profile government and non-government stakeholders across the MENA Region.
AACCI represents the interests of its members with diverse businesses spanning Australia's economy: from agriculture and manufacturing to education, professional services and new high-tech-driven industries.
