Exporting is an exciting, dynamic activity that can open significant opportunities for Sunshine Coast businesses to grow and profit.

The Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Strategy 2013-2033 identified local to global connections as a critical pathway to position the region in key national and global markets as a competitive source of high-demand goods and services.

Engaging with these markets has the potential to strengthen business resilience, generate wealth and lead to new employment opportunities for our local community.

The Local-to-Global Connections 2019-2033 pathway plan outlines key areas of activity to support local businesses to respond and adapt to market change and opportunity.
