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.

“90% of our business is export based and we are expanding rapidly throughout Asia. As we move into new countries and regions it is important to understand the country, culture and business norms and ECA has helped us do this through their programs. ECA has also helped us improve our shipping and documentation efficiency, especially with the new GHS requirements. Overall, ECA is a wealth of information and knowledge and have always been very helpful when we have specific issues or questions.”Become a Member
