ARBC Services

In addition to the benefits of networking within the Council, ARBC members enjoy opportunities for trade-matching contacts with their counterparts on both sides. They also participate in high-level bilateral meetings, trade related Ministerial visits, exclusive briefings and seminars. ARBC works in close cooperation with the Government structures.

ARBC maintains contacts with Chambers of Commerce & various regional administrations. Information exchange opportunities are utilised with the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Canberra, and other Consulates, as well as the Australian Embassy and Austrade office in Moscow. Regular communication with our counterpart Chambers and with the region's diplomatic/consular representatives enables ARBC members to avail themselves of first-hand information important for their activities.
