Australia- Vietnam enhanced economic engagement ECA Submission
The Export Council of Australia welcomes the Australian Government’s intention to deepen and broaden two-way trade between Australia and Vietnam. Moving
forward, we suggest the Government’s efforts be targeted at SME traders. SME exporters are more likely to be able to pivot to new markets, and their
success will contribute to employment creation and increased innovation.
Whether in Australia or Vietnam, SMEs, including start-ups, have strong entrepreneurial drive. But they are constrained by limited resources, access to information and networks. The challenges are even more pronounced when doing business at an international level, with difficulties in identifying commercial opportunities, cultural and language barriers, meeting ambiguous and inconsistent regulations and standards, and complex trade processes, including on finance and logistics. Enhanced government assistance to narrow these gaps, especially for exporting, will be essential.

"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."
