20 March 2023, AAC Chairman & Honorary Consul for Morocco HE Roland Jabbour OAM and Executive Director Will Abdo attended the first networking event of the year held by the Australia Arab Chamber of Commerce & Industry at the International Chamber House on 16 March 2023.
It was an opportunity to connect and engage with AACCI members and stakeholders representing a cross section of business sectors and government bodies.
The stakeholders were represented by the Global Victoria team led by Ms Danni Jarrett, CEO Invest Victoria and Global Victoria. Ms Jarrett in her presentation highlighted the partnership and collaboration between Global Victoria and AACCI and the future trade opportunities and upcoming high scale events locally and in the MENA region.
The event was also joined by Mr Todd Miller, Austrade Trade & Investment Commissioner Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Jordan and Bahrain.
Mr Miller was in Australia for a brief visit from Saudi Arabia. He generated much interest with the insightful review of the countries across the Region, the diverse range of opportunities as well as the potential drawbacks to avoid.
Overall it was a great evening of lively conversation between the attendants and thank you to AACCI for organising a very successful event.
