We are proud to announce that ICE has joined the Australia China Business Council (ACBC).
This brings our business closer to the world’s economic powerhouse and demonstrates our strategic commitment to both Chinese importers and exporters as a key part of our client base.
The ACBC is the primary not-for-profit business organisation bringing together a network of over 20,000 organisations with one goal: to enhance trade and investment between Australia and China.
The ACBC helps Australian and Chinese business partners share knowledge about bilateral trade and develop key relationships to grow their respective organisations. The Council also educates the public about the importance of bilateral trade with China and advocates government policies to strengthen our business connections.
We are pleased to be a part of this international community and are excited to share insights with our Chinese colleagues.
