Trade delegations

Trade delegations provide opportunities for Australian companies to explore new markets, meet potential investors and gain valuable insights and connections.

Since we started our operations in January 2017, we have worked with partners to deliver seven delegations to six countries. These delegations facilitated 119 visits by Australian cyber security companies and related government and academic organisations.

Want to know what it's like on one of our delegations? Check out this video from our April 2018 trade mission to the USA, which we delivered in partnership with Austrade.
