Applications are now open for the 2021 Governor of Victoria Export Awards, which recognize and honor the state’s most innovative exporters.
The prestigious awards, now in their 42nd year, cover 13 categories, including Victorian Exporter of the Year and the Victorian Women in International Business Award.
The Governor of Victoria, the Honorable Linda Dessau AC, has been the patron of the awards and has long championed Victoria’s major global exporters.
Companies recognized by the Victorian Awards will advance to the National Finals and compete against other state and territory winners from across the country, with the companies receiving national recognition for their international success.
Last year‘s Governor of Victoria Export Award winners included Care Essentials, E2 Language, Ego Pharmaceuticals, Gekko Systems, Greyscan Australia, Hosico Engineering Group, Marand Precision Engineering, Planet Innovation and Senetas.
To support exporters affected by the global pandemic, the Government of Victoria has provided $ 15.7 million through the Export the recovery package to connect Victorian businesses to international markets.
Victoria’s network of international trade offices is the largest of any Australian state or territory, strengthening our global links in key markets.
Exports play a vital role in supporting Victoria’s economy, contributing more than $ 45 billion to the economy and helping to support more than 330,000 jobs statewide.
Nominations for the 2021 Governor of Victoria Export Awards close on Friday, August 6, 2021.
