Applications for export awards open
Applications for the 2016 WA Industry and Export Awards have now opened and will remain open until August.
Presented by the Export Council of Australia and the WA Department of Commerce, the program is WA’s highest recognition of exporting achievement and aims at acknowledging the important contribution exporting businesses make to the economy through job creation and increased prosperity for the community.
Export Council of Australia chief executive Lisa McAuley said the program was open to all companies engaged in international business activities, regardless of size or location, and added it was a fantastic opportunity for any business to raise their profile both in Australia and overseas.
“The WA industry and export awards are about rewarding businesses that have shown a commitment and determination to grow their global business and who, against adversity, seek new innovative ways to compete on the international stage,” she said.
Applications for the awards close on August 1 and finalists will be notified in September with winners announced at the gala awards presentation on October 28 at the Crown Perth Convention Centre.
