AIBS 2015 was the second edition of the Survey. In addition to AIBS’ core questions, the 2015 edition of the Survey put an emphasis on international market development activities.
- Over 1,200 Australian businesses were surveyed, drawn from 19 industry sectors, 93 sub-sectors, and operating in 114 international markets;
- China (17%), the United States (16%) and New Zealand (8%) were the most important markets for respondents, by international revenue;
- The biggest barriers to doing businesses internationally were culture and/or local business practices (29%), payment issues (10%) and regulations that
favour local firms (9%);
- Over three-quarters of respondents placed significant emphasis on personally visiting overseas customers in order to develop and grow their international markets.

“Our business is about making it easy for people to make environmentally friendly choices. We are looking to expand into new overseas markets and the ECA have been a huge help in this endeavour. The ECA have given us introductions to key businesses that can help us in the markets we are looking at, and their workshops and seminars on topics relevant to exporting were extremely useful. All up, our association with the ECA has been a great asset to Fruity Sacks.”Become a Member
