Grants support Western Australian businesses to expand into new Asian markets

16 Western Australian businesses were awarded a share in more than $325,000 (excluding GST) in grant funding through Round 6 of the Access Asia Business Grants (AABG) program. 

The 16 projects fall in all 8 priority sectors of Diversify WA, the State’s economic development framework. Receiving up to a maximum of $30,000 (excluding GST), the grants will support the businesses in advancing their export and trade activities in new Asian markets.

The AABG program is a key initiative under Western Australia's Asian Engagement Strategy 2019-2030 - Our future with Asia, which provides a framework for the State’s long-term engagement with key Asian markets and responds to our aim to diversify the economy and create skilled jobs for Western Australians. 

Projects funded in round 6 include developing an export strategy for locally produced spirits, marketing an automated gas detection shutdown unit to the Southeast Asian market, scoping opportunities for Western Australian-made solar and battery systems in Indonesia and Timor-Leste and promoting Western Australian Ultra Running events across Asian markets.

Since its inception in 2019, the AABG program has awarded approximately $1.72 million (excluding GST) to 96 local small and medium enterprises and organisations.

More information about the recipients and their projects can be found on the Round 6 recipients page on the WA Government website.
