Australia India Business Council | Fostering bi-lateral trade for 27 years
Established in 1986, the Australia India Business Council (AIBC) was founded to foster bi-lateral relations between the two countries. We are the only premier non-profit organisation, with a mission to promote trade dialogue between India and Australia through nurturing and maintaining close relationships in both Australia and India, with Federal and State government agencies, the diplomatic corporations and industry bodies.
AIBC plays a pivotal role in showcasing opportunities to business communities of and for Australian Corporations through an active calendar of events, delegate meets, facilitation of knowledge and resources to ascertain emerging opportunities in India.
We have a growing membership and active chapters in NSW, ACT, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia.
SPECIAL FOCUS: INDIA
India will grow rich before it grows grey.
As Prime Minister, should that honour fall to me, I would take India seriously as I have always done, I will treat India as one of the key countries helping to shape the future of Australia and the wider world. On this occasion, I should also thank the Australia-India Business Council for the work you are doing to build links - personal as well as economic - between our two countries.
This is a very important relationship and I am so pleased to be here tonight to see it flourish.
