Welcome to the ATBC

The Australia Thailand Business Council (ATBC) is the go-to body in Australia for access, insight and advocacy on Aust-Thai business.  The Council works to build strong links between the private sectors of Australian and Thai businesses, as well as developing mutually beneficial relations with our respective governments.

The Council works in close collaboration with key stakeholders, in particular, the Royal Thai Embassy in Canberra, the Thai Trade Commission, the Thai Board of Investment in Sydney, and the Australian Chamber of Commerce in Thailand (AustCham).

Australia and Thailand celebrated 60 years of diplomatic relations in 2012/13. The two countries are major trading partners, and trade has grown rapidly since the Thailand-Australia Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) came into force in January 2005.

Thailand is Australia’s 5th largest trading partner with two-way merchandise trade of $18 billion in 2016; Thai investment in Australia was $3 billion in 2016, with Australia investing some $4.4 billion in Thailand.
