On behalf of myself and the whole ICCIAUS Board, we hope this email finds you well.
I am taking this opportunity to reach out to you, our wonderful Sponsors and Members, to see how you are coping during the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the previous months, I believe most of us have had no choice but to re-arrange our business models or day-to-day business operations to prepare for the challenges of a possible recession which we were not prepared for and we certainly didn’t need.
Despite this unfavorable economic situation, I am pleased to acknowledge that the many years of groundwork by Rachele Grassi and the team at the Chamber is paying off. In the last few months we have welcomed an increase in enquiries from both Italian and Australian businesses looking to broaden their opportunities which the Chamber has been able to assist with.
The Chamber continues to promote informative webinars, which have covered topics such as HR and business measures during COVID19 to EU and Australia Economic update v. If you have taken part, thank you. For the Members who have not had an opportunity to connect yet, I strongly encourage you to participate, as it is definitely worth the experience. The next webinar will be on the subject of the Federal budget on Monday 12th October 2020.
Looking forward to the future, we are working on some upcoming small events which we have organised with key Government speakers, so stay tuned.
Thank you for your ongoing support during these times. We are looking forward to seeing everyone very soon.

|• Upcoming Events: Federal Budget 2020|
The unexpected uncertainty created by COVID-19 has resulted in the Federal Government delaying its budget release until Tuesday 6 October 2020. The delay allowed the treasury to further analyse and gain a better understanding of the full economic impact that the pandemic has caused.
Join us on Monday 12 October 2020 @11am as Mazars Partners Gaibrielle Cleary and Clive Todd provide their analysis of the federal budget, dissecting through the complexities to deliver you relevant Tax and Superannuation insights.
Gaibrielle is the Head of Tax at Mazars Australia. She has had over 20 years of experience in the provision of advice in all areas of Australian tax and is an author of leading tax publications. Her specialities include corporate tax, small business concessions, capital gains tax, employee shares schemes and employment taxes.
Clive’s clients' financial well-being is of the utmost importance to him. One of his core capabilities, is that he is able to adapt and respond quickly to legislative change and implement complying superannuation strategies for his clients. With over 15 years specialising in superannuation accounting compliance and strategies, and expertise in all areas of taxation and accounting, Clive is able to help a broad range of clients, with a broad range of superannuation needs.
The prospects for the global economy continue to be conditioned by the pandemic, which will once again be a problem in coming months. From the autumn in fact the risks linked to the overlap of COVID and seasonal flu will definitely prevail. Also in the more comforting central scenario, we expect a slowdown in growth in the 4th quarter. With or without a mass vaccine, we expect a recovery towards normality as from the end of spring 2021.
The Webuild Group is collaborating with the University of Melbourne’s Melbourne School of Engineering to support innovation, inclusion and the professional training of young students as part of its investment in Australia, a strategic market for the Group.
