The First Australians Chamber of Commerce & Industry (FACCI) is the Peak Body for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Businesses established by the National Network of Indigenous Chambers of Commerce and Business Associations in April 2015 to represent the interests of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Businesses and to act as the Key Conduit between the First Australians Business Sector, Government and Corporate Australia.
FACCI is a member driven initiative with a national grass roots footprint. Through our membership of Indigenous Chambers of Commerce and Business Associations in every State and Territory FACCI currently represents 2,509 Certified Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Businesses.
Under FACCI, Indigenous Chambers of Commerce & Business Associations provides a unique model to be embraced by Governments to establish and grow resilient and viable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses across Australia. Through role modelling by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Business Leaders we encourage enterprising Aboriginal communities, focused on commerce as a means to addressing our own Social and economic disadvantage.
A portion of proceeds from the Indigenous Employment Forum will go toward supporting the initiatives and efforts of our community charity partner FACCI.
