Local producers - learn about exporting

LOCAL producers have the opportunity to learn more about exporting at a presentation in Beechworth next month.

Alpine Shire Council is working with Indigo Shire Council and Rural City of Wangaratta, along with TAFCO and NECMA to deliver a workshop on exporting for north east agricultural and horticultural businesses.

Council’s Manager Community and Economic Development Elaine Burridge said the workshop is designed for businesses already exporting or that may be considering the opportunity of exporting but want to know more.

“This is a great, low-cost opportunity for business operators to learn more about the benefits and processes of export, and for those who are already exporting to learn how to keep growing their business,” she said.

“We have government speakers who will cover issues such as free trade agreement processes, exporters and local producers who will talk about their journey in the business of exporting. “Industry representatives will be on hand to explain current and future opportunities, including funding opportunities.

“Participants will be provided with the tools, resources and contacts to make an informed decision on exporting and their business.”
