Wide Bay Burnett Trade Support Service & Gap Audit
Trade and investment is essential for the growth of the Wide Bay Burnett region. An increase in exports will inject dollars into the Wide Bay Burnett region and deliver jobs and services. As dedicated members of WBBROC, the Mayors across the region are strongly committed to working together and with other levels of government and key stakeholders to deliver a changed economic blueprint which in turn will result in a region that positively contributes to the State’s gross regional product (GRP). One of the projects of regional significance that WBBROC believes will deliver a changed economy is the Regional Export Extension Service project. The objective of this project focuses on working with key stakeholders across the region to assist businesses seeking to achieve success in international/export markets and, in doing so, ensure existing and new resources work in a complementary manner to deliver on this goal.
The Export Council of Australia (ECA) have assisted in undertaking the first stage of the project which involved undertaking an audit to identify the current services and gaps to support businesses seeking to achieve success in international/export markets.
