ASR was honoured to receive a video message from Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, The Hon. Simon Birmingham, congratulating us on our 20th Anniversary of services sector advocacy. The message was played at our 2020 Annual General Meeting and also served as the launch of our recently-published Statistical Showcase.
“The services sector has a crucial role to play in our health and economic recovery as we come out of Covid-19,” Birmingham said, adding that the Statistical Showcase “fills an information gap by analysing services export performance through several lenses” and that “services are now the leading source of value added in Australia’s exports”.
