To successfully rebuild requires understanding of the market and customer. Austrade has listened to your feedback and takes seriously our role in assisting the sector to make more data-driven decisions. To that end, Austrade has built and developed our ‘in focus’ series, which provides a suite of market intelligence, data and insights on key markets.
