About Us AVBC

Formed in 1996, under the Ethnic Exporter’s program of Austrade by the late Fred Fenech OAM The Australia Vietnam Business Council (AVBC) was originally founded as the former New South Wales Vietnam Chamber of Commerce. It was joined later with the Australian Vietnam Business Council functions . The Vietnam Trade Office, Consular and Embassy staff of both Australia and Vietnam have been of great assistance for the past 20 years. The AVBC at all times remains non- political and focused on the benefits for the people of Vietnam and Australia and seeks to assist charities wherever possible.

The essential roles of the AVBC are to promote the development of trade, commerce and investment between Australia and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and to facilitate communications and co-operation among its members, friends and governments. Critical to this process has been the need for extensive networking and leveraging from understanding of culture and business practices and the building of trust and long term relationships.

We are proud to have more than twenty years of Australian and Asian Investment and Corporate experience and a pivotal function in providing invaluable business and cultural support to our members’ and sponsors’ activities in Australia and Vietnam.
