Market development & access

The Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA) identifies new markets for State agrifood exporters and works to further develop these international markets.

DAFWA enables the establishment of effective business to business relationships by bringing Western Australian businesses together with selected trading partners in specific premium markets, including business investors.

We provide market intelligence to build local and international networks, facilitate incoming delegations to showcase our high quality agrifood products and work with overseas trade and investment offices to provide advice to agrifood businesses on potential market opportunities.

We enable improved access to priority markets and ensure the State's agrifood industry views are represented in international trade negotiations.
