Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry
The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry is Australia’s largest and most representative business network. Our membership comprises all State and Territory Chambers of Commerce and over 70 Industry Associations. Our Business Leaders Council brings individual business leaders into our network.
Our international arm, International Chamber of Commerce Australia, gives businesses of all sizes a platform to promote free trade and open markets; and influence economic, social and environmental policy decisions in global forums. We speak for business at the United Nations and the OECD; and give Australian employers a voice in the International Labour Organisation, where workplace principles, rules and obligations are decided that will impact Australian firms.
We represent more than 300,000 businesses of all sizes, who employ millions of Australians in every sector of the economy and in every part of our country. Our vision is to make Australia the best place in the world to do business. So Australians have the jobs, living standards and opportunities to which they aspire. Our members work with us to develop policy to advance the broad interests of employers in the private and not-for-profit sector. We focus on issues that impact on business, including economics, industry policy, trade, workplace relations, work health and safety, and employment, education and training. With our members, we ensure the voice of business is heard at every level of government across the country and across the world. Visit www.australianchamber.com.au
