ACCI Stands For:
Global Free Trade
Which provides the best outcomes for the
economy, industry & the community
As globalisation drives closer integration of commercial and economic supply chains,
unparalleled opportunities have opened up for Australian industry to access new
markets, investment opportunities and ideas.
To better position Australian business in this environment, ACCI advocates trade and
international affairs policies which will assist Australian industry to access export markets
and other commercial opportunities through deeper engagement in global affairs and
economic integration with the world economy.
ACCI's Trade and International Affairs Unit also works with the members of our national
member network of business organisations to assist Australian businesses of all sizes
and all industry sectors to overcome policy and practical challenges involved in accessing
commercial opportunities in a global marketplace.
The core work of the Trade and International Affairs Unit includes:
Supporting member business associations to provide business matching and export
Assessing the role and value of bilateral Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and global
multilateral trade agreements
Developing ideas for government or private sector programs that support trade and
commercial links in overseas markets
Promoting the quality of Australian goods and services internationally
Keeping Australian industry informed on foreign policy and 'behind the border'
developments that affect trade and commercial links
Working with industry on balanced overseas migration policy and programs
