entrepreneurship and lifts community living standards.
We aim to foster a dynamic and competitive private sector driven by the
ambition and entrepreneurship of business people, employees and independent
contractors as they essential elements of a prosperous and fair society.
Government policies are important to a strong economy and ACCI ensures that
the voice of Australian business is heard by the Australian Government, regulatory
authorities and the community in order to influence national economic, trade,
employment and workplace policy.

economic growth, job creation and a strong economy to the benefit of our community.
