Australian Furniture Export Survey

Wednesday, April 22, 2015
Following the receipt of Federal Government funding to support the AFA’s vision of "Australian Furniture for every room in the world", the Australian Furniture Association is calling on the industry to complete a short survey on Exporting.

Even if you currently export, intend to export in the future, or even do not wish to export, your opinion and thoughts are vital to contributing to these and future export initiatives.

The results of this survey will enable Government initiatives and future campaigns to focus on assisting the industry in selling their products and expertise internationally.
