2021 Advance Global Australian Survey

Advance has launched its annual Advance Global Australian Survey for 2021. As the leader of a trusted organisation for many overseas Australians in Southern Africa, Advance would like to invite Australians living overseas and those people connected to Australia through work, study or relationships, to partake in the survey with other global Australians. Whether you are an Australian living overseas, planning to go overseas, or someone connected to Australia, the survey will assist them to understand more about yourself and your experience as a “global Australian”.
If you would like to take part in this survey, please find details below.

Why take part? The survey takes less than 10 minutes, and you can:

  • Share your experience around the impact of border closures
  • Show the pipeline of talent overseas and returning to Australia
  • Help us better serve you through our programs and activities

The Chamber

With the active support of the Australian High Commission and Australia’s trade, investment and promotion agency, the Australian Trade Commission, Australian Business Chamber of Commerce (Southern Africa) (ABCSA) is now reaching out to multi-nationals and SME’s who have active business interests in Southern Africa to become members.

This will not only cover the mining industry but across the whole gambit of industries thus giving ABCSA a broader base to work from.
