Export Voice: Spring 2013
The Australian export sector is at a crossroads. Mining is moving from fuelling construction to the sale of minerals, and the dollar and interest rates
are softening. We have not floated away from our very strategic geographic location in Asia, we still have innovative businesses and people with the
passion and drive to make export work and we remain an attractive investment option. So what’s holding us back?
The question is whether the Federal government and the community really grasp the importance of trade to our nation. Unfortunately, it’s not sexy and it
doesn’t win votes.
Australia is one of the few nations where trade and investment is not seen as a key driver of domestic economic policy, despite both playing key roles
in our nation right from the start. In the US, Germany, France, China, the UK and New Zealand and many more countries trade has always been seen as
a driver of economic policy.
Since the recent financial crisis it has been the cornerstone of economic recovery in many of these countries.

“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
