Advancing Trade Development
A study into international best practice in trade promotion
Trade is a key driver of jobs, innovation and long-term prosperity for Australia and increasing trade and investment is absolutely crucial to unlocking our future economic growth.
The Export Council of Australia (ECA) believes that Australia should prioritise and increase investment in international trade promotion, as well as leverage learnings from international best practice in doing so.
The Advancing Trade Development report provides examples and learnings from the excellent trade promotion services offered in ten of the world’s largest trading nations: Brazil, Canada, Chile, Germany, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, the United Kingdom and the United States. It also provides key learnings for Australia’s trade promotion agenda based on this international experience, which have since been presented to government.
The ECA will continue to build on the work that has been done so far in this report by expanding the research in our upcoming Advancing Trade Development II project. This will examine the trade promotion services offered by additional countries that make excellent contributions to international best practice in the space.

“90% of our business is export based and we are expanding rapidly throughout Asia. As we move into new countries and regions it is important to understand the country, culture and business norms and ECA has helped us do this through their programs. ECA has also helped us improve our shipping and documentation efficiency, especially with the new GHS requirements. Overall, ECA is a wealth of information and knowledge and have always been very helpful when we have specific issues or questions.”Become a Member
