Welcome to the ATBC
The Australia Thailand Business Council (ATBC) is the go-to body 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 closely with AustCham in Thailand.
Australia and Thailand celebrated 60 years of diplomatic relations last year. 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 eighth largest trading partner with two-way merchandise trade reaching $15 billion in the 2011 financial year.
