Australian Business in Europe (ABIE) is a worldwide business network founded in London in 1975 to provide a forum for Australians working in Europe and for European business people associated with Australia. The founding members believed that such an organisation would enable these people to meet regularly, to get to know each other and to discuss topics of mutual interest. ABIE has always been an apolitical organisation whose aspirations lie solely in providing the means for those interested in bilateral trade and investment between Europe and Australia to establish contact with similarly dedicated colleagues.

ABIE’s mission statement: Australian Business in Europe (ABIE) brings together multiple organisations representing Australian and Australian-interested organisations across Europe with the shared objective of growing and strengthening the trade, investment, business and diplomatic ties between the two regions.

There are organisations in Australia, Belgium, Finland, France, Holland, Denmark, Greece and the UK, who count as part of the ABIE network and all have members with business interests in Europe and Australia.

Membership of German Australian Business Council entitles you to attend the events of all other ABIE organisations and we encourage you to attend these international events.
