The Australia Malaysia Business Council (AMBC) is a member based business organisation incorporated in the Australian Capital Territory, with independent State Chapters in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia.
The AMBC was established in 1988 with the goal of fostering, supporting and promoting business, investment and cultural opportunities between Australia and Malaysia, reinforcing the 50+ year relationship between the two countries that has developed from one of support in the early years of Malaysia’s foundation to one of close collaboration and comprehensive partnership today.
With a large and diverse membership encompassing all Australian states and territories, the AMBC represents the interests of both large and small businesses and provides an effective platform for members to identify business opportunities in Malaysia, develop useful long-term contacts and interfaces with the Malaysian Government and its trade facilitation departments and organisations.
As well as supporting businesses to expand into Malaysia, the AMBC and its State Chapters have an active program of events, trade delegations, seminars and conferences to connect like minded individuals and businesses with appropriate business & government stakeholders as well as providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and social networking opportunities.
In addition, the AMBC with the support of DFAT and AUSTRADE, regularly commissions research and analysis of business, trade and investment conditions and this research is made available to members through the AMBC website, events and publications.
The current co-patrons of AMBC are the High Commissioner of Malaysia (based in Canberra) and the Federal Government Minister of Trade & Competitiveness.
The AMBC has a close relationship with its counterpart organisation based in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, the Malaysia Australia Business Council (MABC).
