The Export Council of Australia (ECA) is pleased to recognise the Export Award winners announced at one of Sydney’s most prestigious presentation events - the Premier’s NSW Export Awards.

The Awards recognise New South Wales companies for their contribution to the state and national economy.

As a leading advocate for international trade, the ECA, in conjunction with the NSW Government is honoured to manage this state wide competition where nominees secure their reputation on the world stage.

Chief Executive Officer, ECA Lisa McAuley said “given the announcement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), acknowledging exporters is vital in building awareness of these new market opportunities available to business owners. We are seeing more and more new companies that are exporting their goods and services with excellent results.

“NSW exporters have a long and positive future when it comes to trade. Given the recent signing of Free Trade Agreements (FTA’s) now is the time to focus on how we can help build on Australia’s trade capabilities and encourage more companies to look at the global opportunities that are opening up,” Ms McAuley said, adding “We need to take advantage of the market opportunities created by the North Asian FTA’s and now the potential of the TPP Agreement and recognise the success of those clever companies that are really making waves overseas.”

More than 85 applicants vied for one of 12 industry specific categories and 8 state based awards that recognise emerging exporters, leadership, innovation, and above all else export excellence.

In a room abuzz with excitement, more than 650 guests witnessed Nuix take out the coveted Premier’s NSW Exporter of the Year Award.

The Export Awards program would not be possible without the ongoing support of its loyal sponsors: NSW Government, ANZ, Austrade, AusIndustry, Australian Institute of Export, Australia Post and StarTrack, Efic, Export Growth China, Fial, HiFX, HSBC, Hunt & Hunt Lawyers, Insync Personnel, MSM Sales Specialists, The University of Sydney and VChina.
