Queensland: Expert export assistance for Exporting businesses
Exporting businesses will have the opportunity to take part in a series of free workshops aimed at helping them on their export journey.
Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ), the government’s global business agency, and the Export Council of Australia (ECA) will be running a number of workshops across regional Queensland on market selection, export planning and strategy and presenting a product or service to international clients.
“International trade is high on the agenda of many businesses across Queensland but navigating markets, while building capability to become a confident world trader requires ongoing development, even for seasoned exporters,” Mr Greville said.
“This event is aimed at helping all exporters, established and emerging, navigate the pitfalls and hurdles into international trade. It is also a valuable opportunity to network and learn from other businesses who are exporting.”
Professional trainer, Collins Rex, who has more than 10 years’ experience in training exporting clients will be presenting at the event.
