Welcome to AMBCQ (Australia Malaysia Business Council Queensland)

The Australia Malaysia Business Council  (AMBC) is a collection of five state chapters presided by a national president who is elected yearly.  The Queensland Chapter (AMBCQ) is the largest AMBC chapter, and is extremely active.  AMBC Queensland exist to serve the interests of members, and to help to encourage and facilitate trade and investment between Australia and Malaysia.  AMBCQ members come from a wide range of industries.


AMBC Queensland – Open, Inclusive and Dynamic

The diversity, gender balance and cultural make-up, and range of activities of successive AMBCQ executive committees are testament to openness, inclusivity and dynamism of our Chapter.  AMBC Queensland is the newest chapter, but also the largest and most active.  We believe in merit.  An unprecedented 60% of AMBC Queensland’s executive committee members are female.
