“Our exporters have demonstrated incredible strength and resilience this year, with many taking risks, pivoting their business models and investing in new technology to remain competitive.
“The Remarkable Australian Exporters’ Showcase is a great opportunity to recognise the hard-work of our Aussie exporters and learn from their stories and experiences.
“The success of our exporters is critical to rebuilding and restoring confidence in Australia’s economy – they spearhead our prosperity.
“We are committed to helping our exporters access new international markets and expand their presence in existing markets, and Australians can do their bit too this festive season by buying local and supporting great Aussie businesses.”
“I also acknowledge Accenture, Korea Zinc and Sledgehammer who received the Minister’s Investment Awards in recognition of the positive contribution foreign direct investment makes to the economy in creating jobs and driving innovation,” Minister Birmingham said.
