Commonwealth Procurement Framework—2017 Inquiry
Access to foreign markets is extremely important for businesses that provide goods and services to governments.
The ECA strongly supports the Australian Government including government procurement in its past, current and future trade agreements.
Doing so offers major benefits with few costs. Australia already has open government procurement markets, meaning there is negligible impact on Australian businesses competing for domestic contracts.
For exporters, it opens up new markets, enhances certainty in existing markets and provides the right of review for discriminatory conduct.

"In 2014 Vekta Automation became involved in the Export Awards and started to get a better understanding about the role of the Export Council of Australia. After attending a seminar in Perth in February 2019 the decision was instantly made and we signed up the next day. A decision we should have made 5 years earlier. For Vekta, the information, expertise and networking opportunities that the ECA provides has been valuable. It is reassuring knowing that there are experienced and knowledgeable people we can turn to when advice is needed."
