ACT business wins at Export Awards


An ACT business has won a prestigious award at the 54th Australian Export Awards, which recognise success in taking Australian innovation to the world.

 

iSimulate won the Education and Training category at the gala Australian Export Awards ceremony last week in Brisbane, for their work in medical simulation technology.

 

Senator for the ACT, Zed Seselja, said the awards highlight the international success of Australian companies based on export growth, marketing and financial strategies.

 

“So it’s great to have a local business doing us proud,” Senator Seselja said.

 

“Together, finalists generated more than $12.3 billion in export sales in 2015–16 and employed more than 34,500 people.”

 

Senator Seselja said iSimulate was one example of how local businesses are succeeding internationally with the help of the Coalition Government.

 

“These accomplishments are testament to the high calibre of exporters in the ACT and their ability to adapt and thrive in a changing global environment,” said Senator Seselja.

 

“Businesses like these are driving Australia’s successful transition to a post-mining boom economy, with many accessing new markets, and creating new local jobs, with the help of our recent export trade agreements.”

 

The Australian Export Awards are co-presented by Austrade, Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) and CPA Australia.  All winners can be viewed here: http://www.exportawards.gov.au/Winners/2016.
