Pilbara News - - News -

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.
