For several years the Australian economy has largely been based on ore exports to Asian countries.
What perhaps it is not so well-known, is that those ores are transferred from Australia to China, India and other Asian countries by Greek ships.
This was repeated by the Australian Ambassador to Greece, Jenny Bloomfield, during the general meeting of the Hellenic-Australian Business Council, which elected a new Board of Directors for a three-year term.
The Ambassador, who is also an Honorary President of the Business Council, expressed with certainty in a statement that, “Mr. Bodouroglou (President) and the New Board of Directors will actively contribute to the achievement of the Council’s objectives and to its establishment as an important institution which offers multiple benefits to the business world of the two countries.”
The Hellenic-Australian Business Council is the first institution established in Greece aiming to decisively contribute to the wider development of the economic and trade relations of the two countries. Its main objective is to strengthen extroversion by supporting businesses which are interested in developing activity in the robust markets of Australia, Asia and vice versa. By organizing business missions on both sides and with a series of initiatives for the practical support of its members, the Business Council offers a framework of networking, dialogue and practical cooperation of the business world of the two countries.
The Hellenic-Australian Business Council is cooperating with the Hellenic Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (HACCI) in order to have a serious representation of Australian businesses in the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF).
The HACCI, in an announcement, called the businesses of the Diaspora to participate in the TIF, where the HACCI will have its own stand.
