Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs)

The untapped opportunity for the Australia-China relationship

The Australia China SME Association (ACSME) is a platform for SME owners, leaders and senior managers in both Australia and China to meet, network and develop opportunities to do business together.

Small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) represent over 99.7% of all companies operating in Australia. SMEs include some of the most dynamic, entrepreneurial and innovative businesses in Australia and employ 70% of Australia's working population. The bilateral relationship between China and Australia will create many opportunities for both countries, especially for SMEs who have the necessary cross-cultural, bilingual and cross-border capabilities.

The Australia China SME Association aims to act as a bridge between SMEs in both countries to create meaningful relationships, friendships and business opportunities.
