"If Australia once 'rode on the sheep's back' thanks to the prosperity generated by wool and other commodity exports, it now faces a very different global environment. This has added to the many challenges regional Australia, in particular, must contend with.Yet, as this book shows, trade and exports remain of vital importance to the economy of Australia's regional areas. From Sheep's Back to Cyberspace captures the diversity of businesses, products and industries from regional Australia that are succeeding in a competitive global marketplace. In rising to new challenges, regional exporters have sought out new markets and become more innovative in both marketing and production.From Sheep's Back to Cyberspace also examines the impact of trade liberalisation in Australia and around the world. It profiles regional exporting firms, highlighting the role of small and medium enterprises, and issues confronting them. The book explores the way in which 'cyberspace', in the form of electronic commerce, is changing the way regional export industries do business, along with other emerging influences such as globalisation, biotechnology and environmental concerns." -- BOOK JACKET. up.… (more)
