The first edition of Business Envoy – a novel publication that shares market insights from DFAT’s global diplomatic network – is now available to Australian businesses.

Minister for Trade and Investment Andrew Robb said “the bi-monthly Business Envoy will better inform Australian business on the economic and market implications of geopolitical events and trends”.

“The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade produces high quality assessments and analyses of key political and economic issues around the world. This publication will help share that knowledge with Australian exporters and Australian businesses that have overseas operations or are looking to expand overseas,” Mr Robb said.

Business Envoy draws on reporting and advice from Australian embassies and high commissions in key trade and investment markets as well as analysis on international issues from DFAT in Canberra. It complements the important work that Austrade performs in assisting Australian businesses in pursuing opportunities abroad.

The first edition includes insights from Australia’s posts in Beijing, Jakarta, New Delhi, Tokyo, London, Washington DC, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur. With a focus on India, the edition also offers views on doing business with India from Australia’s High Commissioner to India and an assessment on LNG investment in Australia.

In line with the department’s Charter on Economic Diplomacy and Australian Business, the publication affirms DFAT’s commitment to delivering high quality services to Australian business.

Business Envoy is available through the Business@DFAT webpage:
