Australia and Germany enjoy fruitful and dynamic economic and trade relations.
The relevant section at the German Embassy in Canberra follows closely and reports on all economic developments in Australia as well as the monetary, fiscal, trade and economic policies of the government and the relevant independent institutions in the country.
In this context, Australia’s participation in the G20 leaders’ process and its involvement in regional organisations and trade pacts is playing an increasingly important role, as are the related fields of climate, environment and energy policies.
The Embassy and the Consulates General view themselves as an important pillar in the German system of overseas trade and economic promotion, in unison with their partners at the German-Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and at Germany Trade and Invest.
As a point of contact for companies in Germany and in Australia, for business associations and administrators we strive to support bilateral economic relations and to draw the attention of stakeholders to those areas of the economy that merit particular attention in the future.
Close contacts and cooperation with colleagues at the Delegation of the European Union to Australia are another important element of these efforts.
