Pacific Export Survey now available for viewing.
Thank you for your interest in the first Pacific Export Survey. The survey collection phase has now finished and the results have been analysed and compiled into a report.
This survey is the first comprehensive survey of its kind in the region that goes direct to the exporters of goods and service (such as tourism businesses) to ask for their views.
The objective of this research is to provide a greater understanding of the diversity of industry in our region, their size, shape, as well as opportunities and challenges – particularly with regard to international trade.
The findings will soon be discussed at various regional forums and with national Governments to address some of the challenges faced by export businesses in the Pacific region.
All responses that we received will be treated as strictly confidential and presented in aggregate form only. To those of you who participated, thank you once again for letting your voice be heard.
