Arnhem Aboriginal Business Council
Empowerment through Business
The vision of the Arnhem Aboriginal Business Council (AABC) is to create a prosperous and thriving economic environment in Arnhem Land and the Groote Archipelago by bringing Aboriginal businesses of the region together to do three things:
Promote collaborative and effective trade, both with one another and with organisations from outside the region,
Act as a collective voice when engaging with other entities e.g. local, state and federal government and industry and,
To operate socially responsible, sustainable businesses that build upon and improve the economy in our region; whilst creating local indigenous employment, training and skills opportunities.
If you are a if you are a 100% Aboriginal owned commercial business based in the Arnhem region, we invite you to join us in working towards this vision.
