Amidst the lush premises of one of Sydney’s five-star hotel chains, The Australian Business Summit Council Inc hosted a Who’s Who of business leaders, diplomats and politicians at the 2022 ABSC Inc Annual Gala Dinner on 5 May 2022 to formally launch the third issue of EKONOMOS, the annual business affairs magazine published by this leading management consulting forum.

ABSC Inc President for the fourth consecutive year, Dr Frank Alafaci welcomed more than one hundred VIPs and guests to this signature event at The Langham, Sydney, including the Ambassador of Turkey, the High Commissioner of Pakistan, the High Commissioner of Bangladesh, the Deputy Head of Mission of the Embassy of Ukraine, the Consuls General of Spain, Austria, Poland, India, Chile, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Turkey, the NSW Minister for Multiculturalism and Seniors, and the state Shadow Minister for Small Business, Multiculturalism and Property.

Since its registration as an incorporated association at New South Wales Fair Trading in late 2018, the ABSC Inc has served the needs and requirements for Australian businesses to expand, bolster profitability, and achieve sustainable competitive advantage.

Under its charter, the ABSC Inc seeks to promote the bona fide rights of Australian businesses by enhancing Australian entrepreneurship in the domestic market and across the international community.

EKONOMOS, the ABSC Inc’s annual business affairs magazine, presents well-written reports and penetrating appraisals of the current business trends and forces that impact on economic growth by authoritative expert figures in the fields of finance, trade, investment, politics and diplomacy drawn from the Australian and international communities.
