Joint Board Meeting with Austcham Mongolia

Austcham Mongolia was founded in 2013 and has since been the key party in providing Australian companies with the information, resources and contacts they need to succeed in Mongolia’s emerging economy.

As we hold very similar values in promoting a strong Australia-Mongolia relationship, we recently held a joint board meeting with Austcham to discuss how we could deepen our cooperation.

We discussed shared invitations to events run by both organisations and the networking opportunities this would provide to both of our membership groups. Austcham regularly holds their monthly sundowner drinks on the first Thursday of every month and welcomes all Mozzies members. We will distribute information about additional events in the future.
