Australian Business in Europe (ABIE) is a worldwide business network founded in London in 1975 to provide a forum for Australians working in Europe and for European business people associated with Australia. The founding members believed that such an organisation would enable these like-minded people to meet regularly, to get to know each other and to discuss topics of mutual interest. ABIE has always been an apolitical organisation whose aspirations lie solely in providing the means for those interested in bilateral trade and investment between Europe and Australia to establish contact with similarly dedicated professionals.
There are organisations in Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK, who count as part of the ABIE network and all have members with business interests in Europe and Australia.
AFBA membership entitles you to attend all other ABIE organisations events and we encourage you to attend these international events.
