THE AUSTRALIAN Government’s export promotion agency, Austrade, has entered into a new strategic alliance with Hunt & Hunt.
The firm will be involved in activities such as joint seminars, boardroom briefings, direct marketing programs, joint professional development, best practice sharing and web link exchanges.
Hunt & Hunt partner and customs, trade and transport specialist Andrew Hudson said the agreement is the formalisation of an association with a long history. “By sharing knowledge and best practice, Austrade and Hunt & Hunt will jointly be able to provide practical assistance as well as the latest information,” he said.
According to Hudson, the alliance was timely given the increase of Free Trade negotiation activity.
“Australian businesses must navigate a variety of laws, regulations and insurance matters in order to enter and develop international markets. This alliance will provide businesses with the professional assistance, information and expertise they need to become successful exporters,” he said.
Di Robinson, Austrade’s exporter development director, said the alliance will create a business services network to assist in entering international markets.
“Australian businesses increasingly look to their lawyers, accountants, bankers, insurers, consultants and logistics providers for help in dealing with the challenges of international business. The alliance between Austrade and Hunt & Hunt enhances the business advisory capacity of both organisations to successfully deliver international business advice and opportunities to their clients,” she said.
