The NSW Government provides hands-on, practical advice to both potential and existing exporters. We deliver seminars, workshops and events to help potential and current exporters develop and grow their businesses. We have also compiled a number of resources and tools to help you set and achieve your exporting goals.

NSW Export Assistance Package

The NSW Government has launched a range of support measures for NSW businesses at each stage of their export journey. The package includes financial and non-financial assistance, export capability-building and tailored engagement with our trade professionals in NSW and overseas.

The export support measures are designed to help NSW exporters recover and build sustainable international business following the impacts of COVID-19, the bushfires and drought.
