Export Council of Australia (ECA)

The Export Council of Australia (ECA) is the peak Industry body for the Australian export community.The ECA is the next exciting step in the evolution of the Australian Institute of Export (AIEx) which, for over 50 years, has had the interests of Australian exporters at heart.

Owned by its members and steered by a Board and a Council of Industry specialists, the ECA is a not-for-profit organisation that has the development of Australia’s resources via the promotion of Australian
industry in international markets as its primary goal.The ECA represents all exporters: large, medium and small.

As the peak membership body for Australian exporters, we focus on:

• Research: to identify and quantify the issues affecting international trade activity

• Skills Development: to build the capacity and capability of Australian companies

• Advocacy: Make representations to government on behalf of Australian exporters to break down barriers to trade

Given the recent signing of Free trade agreements, the ECA believes the challenge is now on how to capitalise on these market opportunities and broaden Australia’s export base.

In the next couple of months, the ECA is re-focusing our educational offerings to create more value for our members, we will be doing this through the development of programs and services that focus on building the capacity and capability of companies to engage in international trade and create a clear pathway of learning for anyone engaged in International Trade.
