The Australian Chamber of Commerce Shanghai (AustCham Shanghai) is the peak body for Australian business in China. Founded in 1994, AustCham Shanghai is now the largest Australian Chamber of Commerce in the Greater China region. As a membership based organisation, AustCham Shanghai represents more than 400 businesses and individuals providing support, education, advocacy and business services.
AustCham Shanghai is a bridge between Australian and Chinese organisations, facilitating connectivity and promoting bilateral trade between Australia and China.
The Chamber successfully links Australian organisations with Chinese counterparts and potential business partners, enhancing the trade relationship between the two countries. China is Australia's largest trading partner and in 2015 the two-way trade relationship was worth $150 billion - a growing dynamic that AustCham Shanghai is well placed to play an active role in.
As the trading relationship has evolved beyond energy and resources to encapsulate a wide variety of sectors, AustCham Shanghai has also grown to represent businesses in every sector, from manufacturing to health and aged care, to education and financial services.
Today, our Chamber brings the business community together through membership services, events, delegations, project management, representation and advocacy.
AustCham Shanghai exists only to serve its members. The Chamber also undertakes significant fundraising efforts to support our Corporate Social Responsibility partners each year, having raised RMB 5,000,000 over the past 20 years.
