When a ‘yellow’ car doesn’t deliver, why does the best car in the country still make the cut?
- by admin
A car that gets a ‘pass’ for safety can be a good option for long haul journeys but for short distances, the best route is usually a ‘red’ car.
The ‘yellow cars’ have been the standard in some countries, including Australia, since the late 1990s.
But the ‘red cars’ are increasingly seen as the best option in many other countries too.
And it’s a debate that has raged on in Australia for decades.
While the Australian Government has been keen to attract international talent to help with its export economy, the debate has taken a toll on the public perception of the country’s national brand.
In 2010, the government launched the national express logistics strategy, which focused on the export of goods.
At the time, a survey found that 74 per cent of Australians thought that the country was a poor or very poor country for exports, while only 34 per cent thought it was a good or excellent country.
As part of the strategy, the Government set out the following criteria for selecting its national express cargo: Safety, accessibility, productivity, and reliability.
“Red cars” have been chosen over ‘yellow’.
In February this year, the country announced that the government would spend $5.5 billion over four years to make the country a better exporter.
What the government’s strategy says about the public’s perception of Australia’s national exports, and what it means for the economy, is that red cars are the preferred option, despite the fact that there are other vehicles that make better trips.
So what does this all mean?
What it means is that if you’re a ‘green’ exporter, your country’s export performance is unlikely to be good, according to one expert.
Even if your country is good for exports and your car makes the most money, your reputation for efficiency will be hurt.
If you’re an ‘orange’ exposer, your nation’s export profile will be excellent.
That means that the ‘yellow car’ will still make a good first impression on foreign tourists and the international freight market, but your nation will struggle to compete in long-haul shipments.
How much impact do the ‘passes’ and ‘reds’ have on the perception of your nation?
The government has been able to attract overseas talent for a number of reasons, but there is another reason that is even more important to the competitiveness of your country.
In a recent article for the Financial Review, Andrew Mackenzie, former managing director of the Australian Chamber of Commerce, argues that the success of the ‘green economy’ depends on how successful it is in exporting its products.
He suggests that if countries can show that they can produce and sell their products at low prices in the long term, then the ‘national exports’ can be improved.
There are several other countries that are in the same position.
Australia’s exports have been good for some time, but it’s now a ‘national export’ that is now a bit of a joke.
However, it is important to note that this is just the case for exports.
A more pressing issue is how to improve the quality of the goods that we import from overseas.
We import goods for a wide range of reasons.
Most of these are to feed our growing populations, which are growing exponentially.
It’s important that our products have a high quality, durable and safe product.
Unfortunately, the Australian government has decided that its national export strategy is focused on making its exports as good as possible for its citizens.
Why do we export so much?
Australia has a huge domestic and global economy.
Many of the companies that we export to abroad are large international corporations.
This is a major factor in the overall competitiveness of our economy.
It also means that we are exporting to overseas markets.
With our trade deficit with the rest of the world being at a record high, there are fewer and fewer opportunities to buy goods that are at a good quality and that meet our export targets.
Is Australia a bad place to be an exporter?
There is some good news for exporters.
For instance, our exports are being seen as an attractive investment opportunity in Australia.
Australian exports to China account for a significant amount of Australia ‘s exports to the Chinese economy.
It is estimated that Australian exports to Australia account for $1.5 trillion in GDP, which accounts for almost 30 per cent to 30 per-cent of our national export market.
China is also the biggest source of Australian exports.
According to the International Monetary Fund, China is the second largest source of our exports to other countries.
These factors have allowed us to be a successful exporter and to become a global leader in exporting products.
But is this good enough?
