Simplified Trade System Summit 2023

Whole-of-government reforms, designed with business to create a simpler, more effective, and sustainable cross-border trade environment for Australia

Monday, 26th June 2023
Centrepiece, Melbourne Park


The Simplified Trade System (STS) is a whole-of-government reform agenda to create a simpler, more effective and sustainable cross-border trade environment for Australia.   

While trade volumes have grown significantly over the past decade, investment to modernise the trade system has not kept pace. Previous efforts to implement new technology and regulatory solutions were often siloed and not fully integrated or interoperable.  

Together with business, the STS reforms is changing this. Led by the STS Implementation Taskforce, the reforms are being developed in collaboration with business and across all levels of government to ensure a joined-up approach and realistic appreciation of current complexity to design and deliver lasting solutions.    

Join us in Melbourne on Monday 26 June 2023 at the Centrepiece, Melbourne Park.  

This event is an opportunity to meet with industry leaders, government executives, international guests, academia and the community.
