In order for any organisation to meet its goals, it has to seriously concentrate on three things: Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance, known collectively as GRC. These three areas have quite a bit of overlap, which is why they are often treated as three parts of a single area.
Some things in life are simply meant to go together, and one such pairing is undeniably the Australian wool industry and China. Australia is the world’s number one producer of premium quality fine wool, and is the largest producer of all wools by value and volume. 73% of Australian wool exports go to China, the largest importer of wool in the world. In fact, Australian wool makes up 63% of the entire Chinese wool market.
As exporting begins to ramp up like never before in the wake of ChAFTA, the roles of transportation, freight, and logistics are updating their policies and implementing new procedures as matter of necessity. Incorporating and complying with all of the new sets of regulations involved with such a large opportunity will be challenging, meaning that risk management efforts in these areas need to be elevated as well.
