The region’s METS SME Export Hub, as part of Resource Industry Network, has released a Regional Export Strategy to help local industry capitalise on untapped potential.
“By identifying key markets, strengths, weaknesses, and barriers, and developing strategies and actions that create the platform for success, we are well positioned to support the development of a successful export market for our industry sector,” he said.
“At the same time, it enables the sector to continue to evolve, diversify, remain relevant, and increase the innovation we are famous for.
“The fact that this region is already a respected leader in the supply of quality METS products and services puts us on the front foot.
“But the benefits of a successful export hub to our region will also be enormous, so I’d encourage all businesses in the mining equipment and technology services (METS) sector to learn more about the export space, sign up to do one of our heavily subsidised Export Ready Courses, and set their businesses up for success now.”
The MIW METS Export Hub was established last year as a result of funding from the Australian Government, Queensland Government, and the Local Buying Foundation.
It is tasked with identifying, establishing and driving opportunities in the export space for businesses in the MIW region.
