About Us

AKBC is the leading national body committed to strengthening the Australia-Korea economic relationship.

The Council was established in 1978 to promote two-way trade and investment with Korea through economic cooperation, dialogue and cultural understanding.

Chaired by the Hon Simon Crean and led by an Executive Committee of outstanding industry and government leaders, we are a member-based organisation of senior executives from a diverse range of business sectors with a commercial interest in Korea.
