How we work with you

In 2021 the German-Australian Chamber has renewed its strategic focus on how to deliver the largest growth for businesses and our members in both countries.

Additionally, the German-Australian Chamber has introduced four key bilateral industry clusters reflecting market growth opportunities and political support.
