ABOUT THE AUSTRALIA-ISRAEL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

The AICC is one of the oldest Chambers of Commerce in Australia. Celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2020, we understand the burning issues, challenges and opportunities for Australian organisations. We champion innovation at the highest level, drawing on the lessons learned from Israel, engaging today’s leaders while nurturing the leaders of tomorrow.

Over the years, we have carved out a unique offering for our members that connects them with the most innovative thinkers and influential decision makers across the country in order to support their strategic business objectives.

Since 1989, the AICC has attracted leaders from the business, academic and government communities to participate in trade missions to Israel. These delegations have been instrumental in encouraging trade, investment and bilateral collaboration, fostering closer business relationships between Australia and Israel.

Israel, known as “The Start-up Nation”, has more start-ups per capita than any country in the world. It also has more companies listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange than any country outside the United States, apart from China. A centre of global innovation and the home of breakthrough technology and business innovation, Israel continues to outperform the world in innovation and technology commercialisation.
