Australia's International Business Survey 2016

AIBS is run by the University of Sydney in consultation with research partners Austrade, the Export Council of Australia and The Export Finance and Insurance Corporation (Efic). Launched in 2014, it is one of the most comprehensive surveys of Australian companies in international business. The research aims to build a rich database on the profiles of Australian businesses internationally, their objectives and the challenges they face, as well as analyse trends and changes.

The Benchmark Report

The Austrade Benchmark Report presents Australia’s attractiveness as a business and investment destination. Using key economic, financial and demographic data, the report assists potential foreign investors to evaluate Australia's economic credentials against similar economies and to understand the investment opportunities Australia presents. The report examines five key reasons for investing in Australia – Growth, Innovation, Talent, Location and Business – and compares Australia’s credentials with other countries.

Reports and presentations

As well as the AIBS and Benchmark Report, the team at Economics at Austrade also produce a range of other publications. These include occasional research pieces as part of the trade and investment note series, presentations, speeches and articles. A selection of this work is available for download.
