What we do

Established in 1982, the ATBC continues to play a central role in fostering relations between Australia and Taiwan.

With more than a quarter century of successful involvement, the ATBC has an unparalleled understanding of Taiwan’s history, politics and government, economy, business community and culture.

We understand the subtleties of Taiwan’s relationship with its neighbour to the west, as well as the Australian government’s ‘one China’ policy.

ATBC promotes business between Australia, Taiwan and China.  We are the ones who will best connect you with the people who matter to your business.
