Welcome to AIMVIA – Australian Imported Motor Vehicle Industry Association!
On May 19, a core group of dealers, workshops and others involved in the used imported vehicle trade came together to establish a new industry body, designed to meet the needs of ALL stakeholders. This is a crucial first step in helping our industry establish its credibility and legitimacy in future years.
Why is it so important?
The IMVIA in New Zealand has achieved enormous success over the past 25 years lobbying their government and ensuring the best outcomes for their members. AIMVIA is keen to replicate this success in Australia, by creating a single, well-supported industry body through which respective governments can establish strong lines of communication.
AIMVIA’s mission statement:
“To support a fair and competitive imported motor vehicle industry”
Initial goals for the association will include:
- establishing promoting its position and policy on widening current legislation to allow a greater range of vehicles to be imported
- industry advocacy on issues related to the supply of imported motor vehicles
- develop strategies for improving current practices in the industry to help improve its image in the eyes of the general public
