Australian export among strongest in the world: Trade Minister

Australian exporters are among the leading innovators in the world, according to a speech made by the parliamentary secretary for the prime minister and parliamentary secretary for trade, Anthony Byrne at the Export Breakfast Panel this week.

Three of Australia’s leading exporters shared their wisdom and experience with a Sydney business audience at the Export Breakfast Panel, on the topic of ‘Financing exporting success in good times and bad’.

Parliamentary secretary Byrne said that industry should acknowledge the strength of Australian exports at this time.

“We are amongst the leading innovators in the world in the work that we do. And it is time this country understood this. We’ve got to acknowledge the resilience and the strength, the innovation and the durability of our export companies in these very difficult times,” he said.

“We make much in Australia of what happens with our sporting champions — and so we should. But, given the contribution that our exporters make in terms of the national interest, we’ve got to give them appropriate recognition, and the Australian Export Awards do that.”
