The Golden Gala is the largest and most prestigious annual Australia-Japan business networking event in Australia.

It is an instrumental platform in bringing together distinguished VIPs at the executive level from various sectors, including business, government, and universities.

2023 Golden Gala

At the last gala dinner, we celebrated the Golden Era of the Australia-Japan relationship and the 60th anniversary of the Australia Japan Business Council of Victoria. Noteworthy guests attending this event come not only from Victoria but also from other Australian States and Territories and Japan itself.

We were honoured by the presence of His Excellency, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan to Australia, Kazuhiro Suzuki, and his widely-anticipated first keynote address to the Australia-Japan business community in Melbourne. We were also joined by Her Excellency Professor the Honourable Margaret Gardner AC amongst VIPs from the most senior levels of government, business and academia.

There was strong attendance from Australian and Japanese corporates, government and universities across Technology & Innovation, Energy & Resources, Mobility, Agriculture & Food, Tourism & Hospitality, Education & Research, Finance & Investment, Healthcare & Pharmaceuticals, creative industries and Sustainability. 

With the surge in interest in further deepening the Australia Japan relationship, AJBCV membership is growing strongly. We all look forward to a bright future ahead.
