The Australian Export Awards, will run for the 59th year this November, providing manufacturers with the opportunity to have their global operations recognised.
The awards will be presented by the Australian Trade and Investment Commission and the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
“Exporters are helping to drive Australia’s economic recovery while creating jobs and supporting local communities,” minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment Dan Tehan said.
“We can see the success of our exporters in Australia’s record trade figures, with exports valued at $39.2 billion in May 2021, up 34.5 per cent for the year.
“Trade supports one in five Australian jobs and foreign investment supports one in 10,” he said.
“Our government is taking action to create more opportunities for Australian exporters, from reaching an Agreement in Principle with the United Kingdom on a Free Trade Agreement, to providing support to exporters impacted by COVID-19.”
