To further enhance the enormous trade potential through facilitation of bi-lateral trade relations between the two countries, the Sri Lanka and Australia Chamber of Commerce (SLACC) was established in March 2015. We are the first, and only such body constituted in Australia, to foster commercial trade and dialogue between Sri Lankan and Australian businesses. We aim to work closely with other trade organizations, government bodies and non-governmental organizations dedicated to promoting greater cooperation and collaboration between our two countries in all trade related matters. In the coming months we intend to play a pivotal role in showcasing potential business opportunities to our constituent business communities via an active calendar of events to be held in both Sri Lanka and Australia.
By fostering a close relationship between the two countries, via public and private sector engagement SLACC aims to increase trade and profitability between Sri Lanka and Australia. SLACC will endeavor to provide guidance and support to businesses wishing to establish, grow and expand their presence in the two markets.
Sri Lankan and Australian bilateral relations are founded on our shared history of cooperation in areas such as education, trade and investment, sport, culture and development, and via our Commonwealth links. Our common interests in security and sustainable development of the Indian Ocean region further cements our mutual interest in the economic development of the region. Both Sri Lanka and Australia recognize that working with regional partners is crucial to both countries’ continued growth and wellbeing.
