About Us

We connect people and organisations who are committed to promoting, encouraging and facilitating trade, commerce and investment between Australia and Finland.

Our objective is to create awareness of the Finnish business community, strengthen commercial and cultural ties, promote and develop trade and create networking opportunities for members of the Finnish-Australian business community. We work in close cooperation with the other Nordic and Estonian chambers of commerce, as well as the wider European business community and the European Australian Business Council – EABC.  

We help Finnish companies to succesfully expand to Australian markets.
