Growing our economy’s exports is an important part of our business diversification and jobs strategy and is closely linked to the Government’s renewal agenda.  An internationally competitive business sector feeds a strong economy, provides new opportunities for our citizens and creates the linkages for Canberra to continue to grow as a smart and vibrant city.

 In 2018 we are looking to enhance the ACT Chief Minister's Export Awards program. My Government wants to use the program to engage with many more Canberra Region exporters and give them a great vehicle to tell their stories to a national and international audience.

There are already some great company stories coming out of key sectors in our economy such as education, cyber security, information technology, services to government, defence, space and spatial, health, sports, tourism and the creative sector. 

Whatever sector you are from, I encourage you to take a fresh look at the Awards. Not only are they about recognising and celebrating your achievements, but just being on the application journey is a chance to access support and advice from export professionals and make new connections for your business. The Awards also give you a way to sharpen your company’s narrative in an increasingly competitive world and help all of us project Canberra’s credentials internationally. I look forward to your participation.

ACT Chief Minister
