Celebrate the businesses taking Canberra to the world

Released 02/07/2021

Canberra exporters are encouraged to enter the 2021 ACT Chief Minister’s Export Awards, which celebrates the innovation, resilience and success of our outstanding export businesses.

Having a strong export sector is vital to Canberra’s economy, helping us grow as a smart and vibrant city, while providing new job opportunities for Canberrans.

As international markets continue to evolve, Canberra businesses have adapted and innovated to support the Territory’s strong recovery from COVID-19. Resilience and flexibility have been key to diversifying and generating new opportunities in the face of these unexpected challenges.

By entering the 2021 ACT Chief Minister’s Export Awards, we can take time to step back, reflect and acknowledge the hard work of the last 12 months.

Finalists in the awards will be able to leverage exclusive marketing opportunities and connect with leaders in the Australian export community.

ACT winners, in addition to receiving the Territory’s recognition, will automatically become national finalists in their respective award categories in the 59th Australian Export & Investment Awards Program, with the winner to be decided in late November 2021.
