It is because we have seen first hand the hurdles exporters have experienced, with the continuing strength of the Australian dollar, increased overseas competition and high domestic costs of doing business from Australia, that the critical issue of presenting a stronger voice to Government is being addressed.
Maintaining international sales in the current environment is not easy, yet many exporting companies have continued to deliver strong export results and this is what we would like to acknowledge at the awards this year.
The NSW Export Awards is about highlighting companies that have shown a commitment and determination to export and who, against adversity, seek new ways to compete in the international market.
Now more than ever, we realise how important recognising success remains and this is why we encourage you to consider nominating your company for an award this year.
This year also marks the 50th Anniversary of the Premier’s NSW Export Awards program, now the longest running business awards program in Australia. Over the last 50 years over 324 NSW companies have been recognised for their exporting achievements, many of whom first entered the awards as an Emerging Exporter or Small Business and have grown into major international brands.
I would like to encourage all exporters big and small to consider applying this year and reward your team for their continued hard work. Please click here to access the online application site.
The Premier’s NSW Export Awards program is managed by the Export Council of Australia (Australian Institute of Export.) Please contact: Lisa McAuley on: email@example.com or 02 8243 7400.
