About ABF

Australian Business Forum (ABF) is an independent non-political organisation that facilitates Australian business looking to engage with China. ABF does this through identifying and understanding knowledge gaps and facilitating dialogue, business and partnerships.

Our initiatives focus primarily on the Small and Medium enterprise sector and their issues and connection with the Chinese business community. This connection is enabled via our network of partners across business, government, industry, academia and the wider Australia and Chinese community.
