Invitation - Around the World with Chambers of Commerce

In cooperation with most other major foreign chambers of commerce in the Czech Republic, Australasian Business in Europe, is organising an evening event at Zofin Garden called Around the World with 10 Chambers. It will take place on 24 May 2018.  This year we are able to offer CANZA people access to the event at 'member's prices'

This is a repeat of previous year's successful events -  which sold out quickly.

It's a multicultural social and networking evening during which 400 senior business participants will be offered the opportunity to taste culinary specialties from all over the world. Each of the participating chambers will have a booth for presentation of the country. The AU/NZ booth will feature Wine tasting of premium Australian and NZ wines from Smart Buying Wine. There will also be a charity raffle.

Join us for what promises to be a great networking evening. Full details of the event are below. Because of limits on the numbers we can accept due to the size of the venue, register early here.

See below for more detail (click to enlarge).


Announcing the Launch of Australasian Business in Europe

As you may already be aware, we have been working for some time to establish a business focused Australian and New Zealand chamber of commerce

This new organisation, which will compliment CANZA, will be better resourced and will provide support and assistance to CANZA's existing activities.  CANZA will continue to focus on social cultural and sporting aspects while ABiE will focus exclusively on business in a much more traditional 'Chamber of Commerce' model.

If you, or your company, are interested in business, check out the ABiE website where you can subscribe to the newsletter and get more information about membership.


Partnership with CNZBA

We are very pleased to announce a partnership with CNZBA (the Czech New Zealand Business Association).

The CNZBA is dedicated to encouraging, promoting and supporting reciprocal trade, business and investment between New Zealand and the Czech Republic.

Since its establishment in December 2012, CNZBA has become officially recognized as a bilateral platform helping New Zealand and Czech Republic businesses and business oriented individuals expand their mutual business relations.

The CNZBA is a non-profit membership organisation fostering and protecting interests of its members and prospective members, who recruit from broad range of industries. Membership in the CZNBA is available to every company and individual involved or interested in undertaking trade, investment and/or any other form of legitimate business between New Zealand and the Czech Republic.

The CNZBA works independently, but maintains very good relations with the Czech and New Zealand government delegations and their trade & investment departments.

For more information visit www.cnzba.co.nz or Facebook.

If you are a Czech business looking to expand into New Zealand (or Australia) or a NZ or Australian business that has recently arrived in town, please don't hesitate to contact us.  

Partnership with Czech Cricket

cz_team_in_Vienna_2013_resized.jpgCANZA is delighted to announce that it has formed a partnership with Czech Cricket (Českomoravský Kriketový Svaz). Cricket as a sport and outdoor activity is very popular in both Australia and New Zealand with the national men's and women's teams of both countries performing at the pinnacle of the international game. Through the partnership we will be working on two fronts:

1) to help inform Czech-based Aussies and Kiwis that their time in the Czech Republic does not have to be without cricket, with regular senior and junior tournaments being played

2) to help introduce local Czech people to the Australian and New Zealand pastime and our beloved sport, cricket.

CMKS_logo_bigger.pngCzech Cricket has been steadily expanding since its formation in Prague in 2000. Czech Cricket coordinates and support local international and Czech State schools towards participation in the Czech Cricket Winter, Spring and Summer tournaments, which have been showing fantastic growth since their introduction in 2012. The expansion of these tournaments alongside the introduction of an additional team in the men’s game and a major facilities development overhaul project mean that 2014 is set to be a fantastic year for cricket in the Czech Republic.

If you or any of your friends, colleagues or relatives are interested in learning more about cricket, please contact info@CzechCricket.cz or for upcoming events, please keep an eye on the Czech Cricket website here www.czechcricket.cz/.
