Australian ministerial-led business delegation registration

Category : Uncategorized

The Minister for Trade and Investment, the Hon Andrew Robb AO MP, has launched an online register for Australian businesses to indicate their interest in participating in ministerial-led business delegations. 

Overseas visits by government ministers can help advance Australia’s trade and economic interests and promote the international competitiveness of Australian businesses.  Allowing Australian business leaders and education institutions to accompany ministers provides an effective way to introduce them to new markets and open doors to new business opportunities. 

The establishment of a register for ministerial-led business missions highlights the Australian Government’s commitment to strengthening economic diplomacy by expanding Australia’s trade, investment and education ties.  A coordinated approach between government and industry sends a strong message to our trading partners that Australia is open for business.

The on-line register is being managed by Austrade and is accessible from

The register will enable companies and business associations to indicate their interest both in specific regions and also industry sectors.
