SERVING CORPORATIONS, ORGANIZATIONS & INDIVIDUALS

The Midwest chapter of the Australian New Zealand American Chamber of Commerce “ANZACC Midwest” is a nonprofit organization devoted to serving corporations, organizations and individuals interested in enhancing their relations and understanding of these three countries.

A common heritage and language, a shared spirit of independence and democracy, and linkages forged in major conflicts have long fostered understanding and affection between the United States, Australia and New Zealand.

Mutual interest in trade, investment, tourism, education and culture in the Australian region and in global political and economic developments reinforce the importance of America’s relations with these countries.

OUR OBJECTIVE

The primary objective of ANZACC Midwest is to create closer ties between Midwestern United States companies, organizations and individuals with their counterparts in Australia and New
Zealand, specifically those interested in developing new markets, products and technologies. The exchange of information and assistance is expected to flow both east and west across the Pacific.
