Sydney Turkish Chamber of Commerce

Sydney Turkish Chamber of Commerce, a partner of NSW Business Chambers, is an independent, non-profit, non-government organisation of business people working for Australia's economic growth and prosperity.

STCC is called upon everyday by enterprises across the state to provide advice and hands-on assistance in a broad range of business management areas, including workplace and industrial relations, staff development and training, workplace health and safety, environmental management and international business facilitation and documentation.

We are proud to have an extensive network of local and overseas businesses, representing membership interests in a vast range of industries across Australia, Pacific Region and Turkey. We engage with the business community, lodge submissions and make direct representations, and ensure that issues which affect business are brought to the attention of the news media and publicly discussed.

Our objectives and policies are stipulated by an Executive Committee; the committee members are made up of executive staff/partners of large Australian companies as well as managing directors of large to small sized Turkish-Australian businesses.

The formation of our organisation stemmed from our desire to support the welfare of the Australian business environment, as well as Australian Turkish business community. We specialise in assisting trade and investment enquiries in relation to Australia, Turkey and Asia Pacific countries. We hold strong ties with government bodies, leading corporations, prominent individuals and similar organisations across Australia, Turkey and Asia-Pacific countries. We are further committed to increasing the bilateral trade between Australia and Turkey. The foreign trade volume between Australia and Turkey stands at a mere US$1 bn (2011 figures) and hence offers significant growth potential. STCC has been welcomed by the Australian business community since foreign trade relations between Australia and Turkey have long been neglected and there has been a vital need for a dedicated organisation to improve links between these two countries.
