Export Voice: September 2014
What an exciting time to be an Australian exporter. The Prime Minister Tony Abbott has affirmed his commitment to the export community by immediately embarking
on a series of overseas visits to some of Australia’s most critical trading partners and securing new trade agreements with Korea and Japan.
This has given the Australian export community a clear indication of the importance the new government places on exports and trade. With the prospect of a free trade agreement with China on the horizon, as well as generally more buoyant and positive economic conditions, Australia’s exporters have much to look forward to.
In this, the second issue of Australia’s Export Voice, we explore the importance of a strong domestic trade policy agenda for our nation, with a special focus on the education sector as a current and future driver of export growth.
