Council of the Swiss Abroad (CSA)

Elected Council Member for Australia for the term 2017-2021: 


Beat Knoblauch



I studied law in Switzerland and migrated to Australia over 30 years ago after having spent around 10 years in Mexico, South East Asia and the Far East, with Swiss multinational companies. After having arrived in Australia, I created my own consultancy business specialising in advising overseas companies investing in Australasia and Asia.


I have been a member of the Swiss-Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (now SwissCham) and have been the National President for over 10 years. In 2012 I was the recipient of the ‘Swiss Award’ for my contribution over the years in promoting close economic ties between Australia and Switzerland. I am a Trustee of the Swiss Community Care Society in New South Wales. I am also engaged in various community type organisations.


As delegate I was able to participate at every Congress of the Swiss Abroad and attended regularly the meetings of the Council of the Swiss Abroad. I am married with two children.
