The Australia Spain Business Association (ASBA) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to serving its members and to promoting business, cultural and social collaboration especially between Spain and Australia.

ASBA has no political affiliation and its aspirations lie solely in providing a forum for the communication of ideas. In doing so, it seeks to be the key point of reference for Australian businesses entering Spain and for Spanish businesses entering the Australian market.


ASBA began in 1992 in Madrid when a small group of Australian and Spanish businesspeople met to exchange business ideas and cross-promote cultural activities. It was formally set up as an independent association in 1994. ASBA now individual, corporate and institutional members representing many parts of the private sector and government.

ASBA membership is open to individuals and businesses of all nationalities, whether located in Spain, Australia or elsewhere. Check out the Members Benefits section to see all the advantages of ASBA membership.

ASBA´s Honorary President is the Australian Ambassador to Spain, Tim Kane.


ASBA is organized in three chapters

ASBA chapters hold lunches, drink nights and other events to promote contact between its members.
