Department of State Development

So far 2020 has been a challenging year for South Australian businesses.


To assist, the Department for Trade and Investment (DTI) provides ongoing business support for South Australian companies.

Advice, support and guidance to those who have been affected by bushfire includes:

Business meeting facilitation

DTI overseas office staff and Adelaide-based staff can help facilitate meetings with customers and buyers overseas.

In the event a client cannot travel to their export market, DTI staff can act on their behalf to develop and/or continue export relationships with importers, distributors and/or buyers.

Virtual meeting facilitation

Further to in-market business meeting facilitation, DTI can arrange virtual meetings between clients and importers, distributors and/or buyers.

Tradeshow attendance/support

Subject to approval by DTI, support is available for trade show exhibitions which may include business matching and introductions to exhibiting on a company’s behalf (in the event of not being able to travel).

Business missions

Business missions can assist exporters in making vital business connections in markets of interest. DTI’s inbound mission program also provides an opportunity for affected businesses to meet with key buyers or investors in South Australia.

DTI also offers support through the TradeStart and Regional teams network to assist South Australian exporters to achieve success in international markets.

Coming soon

A new program, Export Fundamentals Program, will enable emerging South Australian exporters to access an up-to-date and cost-effective suite of offerings to ensure the broadest range of businesses can grow.
