Building effective business relationships between Australia and Fiji.
The Australia Fiji Business Council is an independent association of businesses based in Australia and Fiji.
The Australia Fiji Business Council (AFBC) was established in 1986 with the aim of providing a framework within which the private sector can communicate with the Australian and Fiji Islands governments at the highest political and policy advising levels with a view to finding solutions to trade and investment issues involving the two countries. It also provides members with an all-important network to help further their business goals in Fiji.
Who are the members?
Membership of the Council includes a wide range of industry groups, from large corporations to small family companies.
Some of the industries represented are: shipping, trading companies, freight forwarding, manufacturing, transport, airlines, accountancy/audit, management and business consultancy, insurance, media, building & construction, tourism, banking, petroleum, tobacco, food/confectionery, legal services and mining.
By becoming a member, you can access all these industries and a well-established network of businesses already operating in the Fiji and the wider Pacific.
The Council operates with an Executive Committee made up of a President, Vice Presidents, several Executive Committee Members, view the current Executive Committee.
What activities does the council offer its members?
The Council’s activities include participation in regular bilateral Ministerial talks to discuss major policy issues of concern to Australian business, the receiving and sending of trade and investment delegations between Australia and Fiji, and the holding of trade, investment and information seminars on Fiji including a major annual conference co-hosted jointly with our Fiji-based counterpart, the Fiji Australia Business Council, held alternately in Australia and in Fiji. Members are given exclusive early access to Business Council activities such as invitations to important events, key meetings with government officials and delegates from both Australia and Fiji and opportunities to participate in trade delegations.
To keep members informed of developments in Fiji we distribute regular updates on current political, economic and social news. Members are also given access to an online hub of comprehensive information and timely updates on political, economic and social issues affecting both Australia and Fiji, as well as other useful and in depth topics. The Australia Fiji Business Council is also developing a suite of member benefits within Australia and Fiji that will only be accessible to subscribed members.
Of particular value to members whose interests in Fiji are in the early stages of development is that the Council provides access to a strong network of Australian businesses with long experience operating in Fiji.
