The Australian German Association Inc (AGA) was formed in 1974 by a group of senior Australian businesspeople who recognised the growing economic significance of the Federal Republic of Germany to Australia including the areas of trade and investment.
A sister organisation, the Deutsch-Australische Gesellschaft, was formed in Germany at the same time. It has now become the Ostasiatischer Verein (OAV). Every two years, the Australia-Germany Business Conference is held in either Germany or Australia.
