Trade Missions

Experience the Start-Up Nation On the Ground

Innovation is the essence of Israel, and for almost three decades, the Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce has been taking Australian business leaders, academics, politicians, and policymakers on trade missions there to experience this for themselves.

These immersive, transformative visits provide in-depth exposure to Israel’s vibrant innovation eco-system and to the unique characteristics and culture that continue to make Israel a frontrunner in global innovation and entrepreneurial success.

Delegates have unrivalled access to Israeli business and academic leaders in an insightful and stimulating schedule of meetings and site visits.

Our trade missions facilitate closer business relationships, foster trade and investment, raise awareness of potential joint venture partnerships and technology transfer arrangements, and increase awareness of the extensive opportunities that exist between the two countries.

The increase in the frequency, seniority, and size of delegations in recent years is testament to the growing recognition of the value of our trade missions, and the role they play in advancing trade, investment, and other collaborations between Australia and Israel.

“AICC – does this stand for Action, Innovation, Culture and Contacts? I was so impressed with my eight days on my recent trade mission to Israel. The AICC team put together an amazing schedule that has opened my eyes to new ideas while immersing me in the Israeli culture and history. The access that AICC has to senior decision makers, business owners and innovators is exceptional and the AICC staff really care that delegates maximise the value of their time.”
