AIBS 2014

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.

Highlights of the 2014 edition include:

  • 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.
