AustCham South China

The China-Australia Chamber of Commerce in Beijing (AustCham Beijing) was established in 1996 and has as its goal the advancement of the broader Australia-China business relationship through the effective representation of its 250 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.

Core to our ability to deliver on our mission are our member-led industry forums. All of our events have a strong industry focus. We release White Papers and industry specific position papers throughout the year, an important medium for communicating member priorities. The Chamber regularly engages with government and other key stakeholders on issues of concern to members, and actively contributes to the public debate.

Importantly, AustCham Beijing 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 Beijing works closely with its sister Chambers in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tianjin, Bohai, Chengdu and Hong Kong, under the AustCham Greater China banner.
