Companies across the Nicholls electorate are being encouraged to nominate for the Australian Export Awards, where successful exporters will be recognised for the important contribution they make to the economy and community.

Federal Member for Nicholls, Damian Drum, said the 59th Australian Export Awards would showcase success stories in 13 categories, with the Australian Exporter of the Year to come from those category winners.

  1. Advanced Technologies
  2. Agribusiness, Food and Beverages
  3. Creative Industries
  4. E-commerce
  5. Emerging Exporter
  6. International Education and Training
  7. International Health
  8. Manufacturing & Advanced Materials
  9. Minerals, Energy and Related Services
  10. Professional Services
  11. Regional Exporter
  12. Small Business
  13. Sustainability

“From one person working from home to large organisations, there are exporters in Nicholls that are successful, innovative and resilient and they should be celebrated,” Mr Drum said.

“Trade supports one in five Australian jobs and foreign investment supports one in 10 and these awards recognise the substantial contribution our exporters and investors make to the nation’s economy and to the Goulburn Valley community.

“I urge businesspeople in Nicholls to nominate so we can thank you for the work that you do and the jobs you support.”

Nominations close on August 6, with winners to be announced in November.
