Export Capability Building Program

Through our export seminars, New South Wales exporters and would-be exporters can learn about the basics of exporting, visiting target markets and expanding internationally.

The Export Capability Building Program provides assistance across NSW. It is aimed at businesses seeking to initiate export activities as well as export-ready businesses looking to consolidate their knowledge and maximise long-term export gains. A series of Introduction to exporting workshops are at the program's core. The program also includes informative events on topical issues for exporters, such as the free trade agreements forged with China, Japan and Korea.

The Export Capability Building Program is designed for business operators who are open to new ideas and are keen to interact with other exporters and subject matter experts to grow their international business.
