International Business Today: Summer 2014
We’re delighted to bring you the final issue of the Export Council of Australia’s (ECA’s) member magazine for 2014. You’ll notice we’ve changed our masthead from Australia’s Export Voice to International Business Today. Although our name has changed, what remains the same is our commitment to keeping you up-to-date with everything happening in Australia’s export markets.
Our cover story this issue looks at opportunities for Australian exporters in Indonesia, following the election of Joko Widodo as president earlier this
year. It will be fascinating to watch Australia’s commercial relationship with our nearest Asian neighbour change and deepen in the coming years, which
will hopefully provide further opportunities for Australian exporters in that market. Indonesia does face challenges as its economy matures, especially
when it comes to building infrastructure. Australia has an opportunity to be an important element in how the country will address those issues, as
you can read about here.
