Australia's International Business Survey (AIBS)


In 2014 the ECA launched a longitudinal survey, Australia’s International Business Survey (AIBS), with Austrade, Efic and the University of Sydney, designed to capture data on the international business activity of Australian companies. The first survey captured data from over 1,600 Australian exporters, making it the most comprehensive investigation into Australia’s international business activity in more than 15 years. AIBS 2015 (which was released on 30 July 2015) resulted from the collection of fully completed and validated responses from 1,237 companies involved in international business. The findings of this report are distinctive and significant because they provide key insights into the nature, needs, concerns and future plans of the overall Australian international business community from the company perspective.
