“Even in these tough times for exporters there are some outstanding success stories that can inspire the export industry.” - Lisa McAuley, Australian Institute of Export
The success and sustainable growth of an export business depends on its ability to face challenges head on and seek new opportunities.
Right now companies are battling a high dollar, continued fallout from the Global Financial Crisis and increasing international competition.
“Business as usual” will not be enough to ensure success. Now more than ever there is a need to be more innovative, and look at new ways to keep up with the international market. Last night at a reception attended by the Hon. Barry O’Farrell, Premier of New South Wales the 2011 Premier’s NSW Export Awards recognised the State’s top export companies big and small and there were some outstanding winners.
“The 2011 winners of the Premier’s NSW Export Awards are role models for other businesses in our State. The innovation, persistence, and focus they have exhibited in taking on the world and winning, in a period where the AUD is high and economic recovery is very fragile in many markets, is testament to their tenacity. This year’s winners represent the wonderful cross section of industry sectors in NSW that can compete on the world stage. They are wonderful ambassadors for our State and we wish them well as they continue their export journey”.
– Peter Mace, General Manager, Australian Institute of Export
The winners of the 12 national categories will now go on to compete at the national level in the 49th Australian Export Awards on the 8 December in Brisbane.
