AIBS 2017 International Activities Dashboard

This dashboard provides some details on our AIBS respondents, including how responses vary by market, or the main sector in which the participating business operates and whether respondents generate their revenues from the sale of goods or services (or both).

This year's results include a profile of exporter engagement with FTA markets.

 

Diversity of international activity
