We punch above our weight.
South Australia accounts for 80% of Australia’s premium wine production and 60% of Australia’s wine exports, produced from some of the oldest vines in the world.
Our major merchandise exports to the European market include alcoholic beverages (predominantly wine but also beer), coal, oil, seeds, ores and concentrates, lead and gold.
These strengths are growing with exports in research and development (R&D), information technology, products and services, health and medical devices.
South Australia’s proximity to and increasing familiarity with the Asia-Pacific market provides an opportunity for UK and EU exporters looking to take advantage of our location, lower operational costs and trade agreements with the region.
With confidence gained through rapid expansion in the Australian market we were ready to test the adaptability and demand for our products and service offering in the UK and European markets. The OAG were instrumental in ensuring a productive and successful mission to the UK. By arranging introductions with strategically sourced industry stakeholders and business advisors, the OAG helped us to test our assumptions and come away with the confidence to pursue our expansion into these new territories. Thank you James, Annabel & Jan for your great work, support and hospitality at Australia Centre.
