Be Trade Ready Website
The Be Trade Ready site is a website developed by ANZ in partnership with the Export Council of Australia. It is aimed at providing one-stop information on a range of subject areas of importance to Australian companies engaged in international trade.
Be Trade Ready covers four main areas:
- Company benchmarking against a range of parameters to assess export readiness
- Asian market strategizing, benchmarked against peers
- Market intelligence, including detailed information on Australia’s trade agreements, and a high level HS code comparison of Australia’s relative FTA
benefits against those of partner nations’ other agreements
- A downloadable, bespoke international business plan, dynamically generated based upon the inputs into the site, and the information accessed while navigating the site
The site is unique because it:
- Provides comparative data, including high level tariff information for 16 key industry segments, between Australia’s trade agreements and those of
our partner nations with other countries
- Delivers comprehensive downloadable FTA information pack
- Delivers free, bespoke international business strategy reports
Our goal is to bring people together to:
- build professional capabilities in trade
- elevate the profile of trade
- advocate the benefits and opportunities of trade
- facilitate networking
- improve the performance and success of companies in global trade
- boost the efficiency of trade processes.
