SA businesses head to China to boost exports


More than 200 South Australians will fly to China this weekend to explore new business opportunities that will increase exports and create jobs for the State.

The group will visit Guangzhou, Qingdao, Yantai, Jinan, and Shanghai and will build on the success of last year’s corresponding mission to China when:

  • 30 MoUs were signed
  • 13 export deals valued at more than $3.5 million were done,
  • $50 million worth of leads were created.

These South Australian businesses will explore trade and investment opportunities across a number of industries including, wine, education and training, research and development, water and culture.

Premier Jay Weatherill and Minister for Investment and Trade, Martin Hamilton-Smith will lead the mission and also participate in a number of high profile meetings to further cement South Australia’s relationship with China, and in particular, with the new Government leadership appointed in the Shandong Province.

The Government of South Australia has been effectively engaging with China through a long-term partnership with Shandong Province, which in 2016 celebrated its 30th anniversary.
