AIBS 2014 was the inaugural edition of the Survey. It was one of the most comprehensive investigations into Australia’s international business activity undertaken in over 15 years.
- Over 1,600 Australian businesses were surveyed, operating across more than 120 international markets, and mostly representing the services (58%) and
manufacturing (31%) sectors;
- The biggest barriers to doing business internationally related to local culture and business practices, local regulations and customer payment issues;
- The most important domestic factors impending international competitiveness were the value of the Australian dollar, transport and freight costs and labour productivity.

Member of the ECA
"In 2014 Vekta Automation became involved in the Export Awards and started to get a better understanding about the role of the Export Council of Australia. After attending a seminar in Perth in February 2019 the decision was instantly made and we signed up the next day. A decision we should have made 5 years earlier. For Vekta, the information, expertise and networking opportunities that the ECA provides has been valuable. It is reassuring knowing that there are experienced and knowledgeable people we can turn to when advice is needed."
