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.

“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
