Victorian Government led Super Trade Missions
Growing export markets is one of the four pillars of the Victorian Government's economic reform agenda. We support industry in accessing international export markets through the Victorian Government International Engagement Strategy Super Trade Missions Program, as well as targeted, department led agriculture trade missions.
The first Super Trade Mission (STM) to South East Asia, held in June 2013, is anticipated to generate export sales of approximately A$230 million; the 2014 STM will build on these existing relationships, demonstrating Victoria's dedication to the region.
