Export Growth China

Connect your products and services to the epicentre of wholesalers

Australian businesses are in a prime position to satisfy China’s growing appetite for healthy, green and high-quality goods and services. The launch of Export Growth China; the Chamber’s member-only export program for small-to-medium businesses, will connect your products and services to a nation of 1.3 billion consumers. The program boasts a modern showroom in Shanghai, located in the most densely-populated district of wholesalers in the world, and in addition, the program is only a fraction of the cost of trade shows.
