Fresh insight on trade opportunities for NSW

6 May 2014

This week NSW Trade and Investment Commissioners are meeting with business and industry representatives in Sydney, Western Sydney and across regional NSW to discuss the latest international business opportunities.

The commissioners head up six NSW Government international trade offices in key markets as part of the NSW Government's efforts to promote economic, trade and cultural growth.  

Collectively, these offices and Trade and Investment Commissioners have helped to attract $2.1 billion in direct foreign investment, $683 million in export sales and generate around 2300 jobs for NSW.  

NSW Trade and Investment offices in the key markets of China, India, the United States, the United Arab Emirates and most recently Japan are a valuable asset for NSW businesses keen to tap into international opportunities.  

During this week's visit the Commissioners are attending the 2014 CeBIT Expo, the Asia Pacific's biggest ICT tradeshow, at Sydney Olympic Park, where they will meet local tech business leaders and discuss international markets.  

They are also heading out to regional NSW and to Western Sydney, to meet with business leaders in key economic sectors such as advanced manufacturing, food production, agricultural and international education.  

The NSW Trade and Investment Commissioners are able to provide information on latest developments in key international markets as well as help set up initial meetings and network opportunities.  

They have a proven track record of helping NSW businesses secure international trade and I encourage local business leaders considering expansion into overseas markets to take advantage of their visit this week.
