$200k to access Asian markets

WA’s small and medium-size enterprises and business associations can now apply for a total of $200,000 in grants to help access key Asian markets.

The Access Asia Business Grants, available to up to 20 businesses, aim to create jobs by diversifying trade with Asia.

Expressions of interest for round 2 opened on 12 October and close on 23 October, 2020.

The grants support businesses to access key Asian markets, with a focus on WA’s priority industry sectors.

CCIWA’s International Investment and Trade Centre Manager Michael Carter says, while international travel is banned, there are several ways businesses may utilise the grants.

“Whether it’s scoping new global supply chains, or developing export markets to help businesses diversify and derisk, ITIC can help,” he says.

The team at ITIC can be contacted via their website.
