New South Wales   -- Export & Trade

New South Wales

Exporting has been vital to the growth of regional economies for over two centuries and the food, agriculture and mining sectors in particular have played leading roles in shaping NSW’s trade and economic prosperity.

Each region in NSW has unique communities and strengths. Harnessing these advantages creates fresh opportunities for product value-add, export growth and the creation of skilled, high paid jobs across a range of sectors.

In 2021 we can see how international trade is already being transformed by digital disruption and an increased demand for services. The future of global trade looks more connected than ever, providing opportunities for even the smallest NSW businesses to participate in a global marketplace.

Rapidly changing technologies such as automation, robotics, artificial intelligence, and the internet of things (IoT) will fundamentally re-shape industry and business over the next century. NSW’s future trade success lies in the knowledge-based economy and industries that take advantage of emerging technologies by remaining competitive through the provision of high value-added products and services.
