Andrew Barr is calling for local business to sign up for trade missions to the USA in the hope of winkling some ever more worthless greenbacks out of the collapsing US Government.
The ACT Labor Government is urging local companies to consider being part of a pilot program aimed at helping them crack the lucrative trillion dollar US market for government services.
The Exporting Services to Government pilot has been developed in consultation with the ACT Exporters’ Network, the NICTA e-government Cluster, the AIIA CollabIT Network, the Defence Export Unit and Austrade. It features local export success story Stewart Rendall who will act as mentor, providing his experience and expertise to companies involved in the pilot.
The pilot, being delivered in collaboration with Austrade is all about giving Canberra companies the knowledge and access to networks they need to crack the US market.
The all important trade mission sets off “later in the year”.
