Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

The Australia Saudi Business Council Inc. is a new association formed with the support of the Australian and Saudi Governments, by a consortium of Industry leaders and the two national Industry Associations, with its key objective being to increase all levels of engagement between Australia and Saudi Arabia.

The Australia Saudi Business Council Inc. was established to develop and promote business and commercial links between Australia and Saudi Arabia. Its secondary aim is to establish, promote, facilitate or participate in joint business councils or other joint business organisations in partnership with the Association of Saudi Chambers of Commerce or other Saudi business organisations.

On March 22, 2013, there was a signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with Mr Samir Gabbani of the Council of Saudi Chambers which confirmed our commitment to establishing a Joint Business Council.

The objectives of the Australia Saudi Business Council Inc. are:

  1. to develop and promote business and commercial links between Australia and Saudi Arabia;
  2. to establish, promote, facilitate or participate in joint business councils or other joint business organisations in partnership with the Association of Saudi Chambers of Commerce or other Saudi business organisations; and
  3. to do anything else which is incidental or beneficial to the furtherance of the above purposes.

The Australia Saudi Business Council presents a great opportunity to enliven the relationship between the two countries and we look forward to your involvement.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
