Growing the Japan-Australia business community since 1963
The Australia Japan Business Council of Victoria champions the interests of corporates, government, universities and individuals through regular business events and programs.
The Golden Era
We believe Victoria and Japan are entering an unprecedented age of interdependence and mutually beneficial outcomes.
Australian and Japanese government, academia and captains of industry agree with us on the enormity of the business opportunities ahead.
Melbourne is Australia’s largest city by population. It has one of the highest GDP per capita in Australia and Asia Pacific. State developments in investment and trade show the economic complementarity between Australia and Japan has never been stronger.
Victoria has world-class expertise in research and development, design, engineering, supply chain management and logistics. It is home to more than 20 cutting-edge advanced manufacturing research centres, many in partnership with our world-class universities.
“The Australia-Japan relationship is built on shared values such as democracy, human rights, and the rule of law. Our special strategic partnership has risen to a new, higher level.”
Hon. Anthony albanese mp, PRIME MINISTER OF AUSTRALIA
