Spotlight on our achievers

Aseries which showcases the ingenuity of our business community and provides insights into how businesses can enhance their competitive edge has this week been launched by Business News.

WA, with its export-focused economy, has countless stories of highly resourceful individuals and companies who have overcome geographic isolation and heavily subsidised foreign competitors to make a significant mark around the globe.

With a population of just 1.8 million, the State contributes almost 27 per cent of Australia’s export earnings. While the majority has come from the mining and energy sectors, earnings from manufactured goods and services are rising.

Business News, the State’s only dedicated business newspaper, will profile companies that have risen to global prominence and look at the issues they must grapple with when competing on the world’s stage.

Specialist transport and international trade writer Evelyn Duffy this week starts her special reports by profiling Marine & Offshore Group, a Perth-based firm that has experienced tremendous growth in short time.
