Barriers to growth in Australian services exports—2015 PC Review
There is significant potential to increase Australia’s services exports and the ECA fully supports efforts by the Government to open new market opportunities and provide necessary assistance to companies wanting to expand internationally. Services exporters face unique challenges that arguably have not been well addressed through traditional trade liberalising mechanisms, such as FTAs, in the past.
The ECA is pleased, however, to note that greater focus has been placed on non-tariff outcomes in recent FTAs and that the government is jointly leading
the Trade in Services
However, as articulated in the ECA’s 2013/14 TPR, ‘international competitiveness begins at home’and there are issues that can be addressed in the domestic policy context, which will help Australia achieve growth in services exports.

"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."
