Export EU: A guide to the European Union for Australian Business

Acknowledgments

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) wish to acknowledge all those who assisted in the publication of previous editions of Export EU.  In addition they would also like to acknowledge those who assisted with this updated publication.

Primary research and drafting was undertaken by the European Union and Western Europe Branch within DFAT.  Contributions from Trade Development Division and the Office of Trade Negotiations were also appreciated. 

For the original version, Walter Goode’s Dictionary of Trade Policy Terms (published by the Centre for International Economic Studies, University of Adelaide) was a useful reference document and elements of this have been drawn upon for the A-Z section.

As the case studies show, a number of businesses provided substantial input to the publication. Valuable comments and assistance came from Patons Macadamias, Hardy Wine Company, Seedmark, Michell Wool, RM Williams, AV Syntec, National Australia Bank, Garwood International, ACL Bearing Company, Virtual Programming, Bishop Technology Group, Austal Ships and Chris Grow Engineering. 

Other government agencies consulted include the Department of Industry, Tourism and Resources; the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry; the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service; and the Export Finance and Insurance Corporation.

European Union photographs were sourced from the Central Audiovisual Library, European Commission.
