Expressions of interest are now open to South Australian companies looking to build their exports overseas with the release of a new business mission and activity calendar to showcase South Australia to the world.

Business mission and activity calendar provides companies within key sectors of economic growth the opportunity to expand their export potential and international market presence.

Minister for Trade Tourism and Investment David Ridgway said the Joyce Review commissioned to assist the South Australian Government to lift its economic growth and increase the state’s prosperity, identified realigning its international and interstate engagement, bodies and functions.

“Several responsibilities out of the recommendations fall within my agency, including the coordination of all outbound and inbound economic missions and the development of an annual business mission and activity calendar.” Minister Ridgway said.

“I know that industry has been keen to hear about the opportunities to showcase their export capabilities to international markets, but it has been important to ensure that we are focused in our approach and that we are targeting companies from key sectors and activities that will add economic value to our state.”

“I’m therefore pleased to be releasing this calendar today that does exactly that, offering a comprehensive program of activities that South Australian businesses can be part of.”

Outbound and inbound business missions and activities planned for the rest of 2019 will provide opportunities for companies to build international connections, trusted relationships and collaborative partnerships, as well as providing access to foreign investment opportunities, to secure in-market distributors and/or importers and the chance to grow business within the market.

“We are proposing a tailored program of events that provide opportunities for businesses to participate in activities such as business matching, networking opportunities, site visits, exhibitions and briefings.” Minister Ridgway said.

“Our inbound program is also vitally important in providing the opportunity to welcome potential business partners and investors from around the world to see first-hand, a company’s products and capabilities as well as being able to visit our beautiful state.”
