The function of the AICC is to encourages and promotes bilateral trade and investment between Australia and Israel. This is achieved through local business networking events and the co-ordination of inbound and outbound Trade Missions. We offer our members trade support services including seminars, introductions to Israeli companies and customised business programmes to and from Israel.
The value of Australia-Israel bilateral trade in 1970 was $10 million. This relationship has grown exponentially since then, and stood at over $800 million last year (Israel Ministry of Industry and Trade and Austrade). There are new trade and investment opportunities constantly arising between the two countries, and we would encourage you to investigate these through the AICC.
The AICC can assist you in finding potential business partners, whether it be for exporting or sourcing products and/or services, accessing new technologies, or even visiting some companies during your next holiday or business trip to Israel.
Israeli companies excel in areas of technology, which include Information Technology, Software Development, Telecommunications, Biotechnology, Medical Equipment, Clean technologies and Agriculture. There are also many Israeli companies manufacturing and exporting other products, including consumer goods, security products, plastics, chemicals, jewellery and religious artifacts.
Similarly, the AICC assists Israeli companies to develop business relations with Australian companies and to secure business opportunities in the Australian market. Specifically, the AICC can help companies identify business partners or distribution channels and access new technologies. We can also assist with arranging business visit programs and with information about doing business in the Australian market.
The AICC is establishing an industry specific forum, comprising a number of Trade Subcommittees to investigate gaps in the local market and identify related opportunities for Israeli companies. They will draw on the professional skills, experience and networks of the Chamber's diverse membership base and relationships to develop business relationships and increase bilateral trade. The IT/ICT, Medtech/Life Sciences and Cleantech Trade Subcommitees have been established.
