To pursue sustainable export success, businesses need to make careful decisions, backed by detailed planning and up-to-date market information. The Export Pathways Program aims to build the export capability of Western Australian (WA) agribusinesses through small group training and one-on-one mentoring.

Building your export capabilities

To support WA agribusiness exporters, the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) presents Round 2 of the Export Pathways Program, which will be delivered by Export Connect with the WA Government (through DPIRD) funding 50% of participation fees.

Two streams to choose from

There are two separate streams designed for WA agribusinesses at different stages of their export journey:

  1. Export Market Readiness - for businesses with aspirations to begin exporting, but not exporting yet. 
  2. Export Market Development - for businesses that have undertaken some exporting and are seeking to increase export activity.
