Your export guide to

An Island in a Sea of Opportunity

Australia has a long tradition of trade with foreign countries and in the past 25 years, their mineral and energy resources development has relied mostly on the injection of foreign capital. They also benefit from consistent economic growth, highly skilled workforce, strategic location, strong governance, good infrastructure, and a business-friendly environment.

Its location, far from the most important regional groupings (Europe and North America), also prompted the country to pursue a policy of cooperation in the Pacific, especially in the shipping, aviation and economic management areas. Altogether, trade liberalism and economic reform have been at the core of the Government policy for decades. Foreign investors can then benefit from a very open market, with minimal restrictions on imports of goods and services.

In this Getting to Global guide, we will guide you through the process of reaching Australian’s consumers, successfully making sales on ecommerce channels, and getting your products to reach the desired consumers. And in case of doubt, remember that if Australia can export camels to Saudi Arabia, anything is possible.
