Supporting Australian Business in Taiwan
For more than a quarter of a century, the ATBC has played a leading role in fostering business and other relations with Taiwan. The ATBC understands Taiwan and Australia-Taiwan business – the opportunities and rewards – better than any other organisation.
What the ATBC offers members:
The right connections
As a result of three decades of dedication, the ATBC has unrivalled access in Taiwan. The ATBC enjoys close relations with leaders across all industry sectors – as well as excellent connections at the most senior levels of the island’s public sector. The ATBC’s links with the Taiwan business community in Australia, China and other countries are close and productive.
Business advice and opportunities
The ATBC is proud of its record in anticipating and identifying business trends and opportunities. Members benefit from regular analysis and reporting and members and other Australian companies take advantage of commissioned ATBC research and consulting services.
Advocacy and influence
The voice of the ATBC is heard - and heeded - in high places.
The ATBC places a high value on teamwork with Australian and Taiwan governments, making submissions and representations on behalf of members and the wider business community on broad trade and investment issues as well as the interests and concerns of individual member companies.
