Austalia’s Ambassador to Greece, Jenny Bloomfield, visited Melbourne on Dec. 10 to meet with officials of the Hellenic-Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (HACCI) who hosted a dinner for her, where she talked about improving relations between the countries.
Bloomfield updated HACCI on the progress of the Greek-Australian Business Council (HABC) based in Athens, of which she is Honorary President and instrumental in its establishment last August. She stated that HABC with time, will contribute decisively to the broader development of economic and trade relations between Greece and Australia.
HACCI officials informed her of the recent success of the Trade Delegation that visited Australia from Thessaloniki at the end of November, including the overwhelming positive feedback received from the 16 participating companies who had more than 100 business-to-business organized for them by HACCI in Melbourne, and who see solid business leads and prospects in Australia based on the connections made.
Bloomfield congratulated HACCI on its programs and initiatives as well as on its vital role in the Hellenic-Australian community. She emphasized the importance of HACCI’s efforts to strengthen and further develop the bilateral trade relationship between Australia and Greece while preserving and building on the foundations of new connections and associations.
The Ambassador reiterated her commitment to supporting HACCI’s efforts to establish stronger bilateral relations between the two countries and expressed her wish to assist by supporting further projects in this regard in the future.
