Auscham and AChCC, located in Chile and Australia, announced today a strategic alliance generating extensive benefits for each of the Chambers members. As part of the alliance, AChCC will rebrand under the Auscham banner. As part of the agreement, each Chamber will be managed and funded independently with the common goal of engaging new members and increasing participation from current members.

The benefits for each organisation include:
• Additional opportunities to promote and encourage trade and investment between Australia and Chile.
• An increased presence for the Chambers in both Australia and Chile to cross-promote events, activities and delegation visits.
• Additional activities and benefits that can be utilized by members in both Australia and Chile.
• Additional opportunities for members to network with potential customers, business partners and like minded individuals.

The new alliance will further strengthen the reputation that each Chamber has built since their inceptions. By sharing branding, it will create a unified front allowing the Chambers to better represent their member’s interests at all level for government and with private industry.

¨Auscham has done an incredible job these past few years of engaging Australian and Chilean companies who are established in Chile. There is no doubt that the new alliance will allow both chambers to provide members with additional benefits while also engaging new members who are based in Australia but have yet to make the plunge into Latin America or vice versa.¨ said AChCCC President, Harris Gomez.

The Australia-Chile Chamber of Commerce (AChCC) was established in 1981 with the objective of promoting closer trade links between Australia and Chile. The AChCC is a private, non-for-profit company, whose membership comprises individuals and companies from all business sectors and from throughout Australia. It is the leading reference point for those persons wanting to benefit from the wide range of business opportunities that Chile has to offer Australia and vice versa.
