Applications are now open for the State Government's new Priority Sector Funding Program.

The McGowan Government established the grant program with the aim of assisting Western Australian companies to engage with and develop international business capabilities in Asia.  

The program is open to applications, from industry associations and bilateral businesses, to run projects on behalf of Western Australia's priority trade and investment sectors and markets.

Suitable sectors include mining and energy, education and training, marine and defence, aerospace and aviation, information and communications technology, health care, building and construction, creative industries and consumer goods.

Funding of up to $30,000 is available for outbound projects, such as delegations participating at key international forums or business programs; and $20,000 for inbound projects, showcasing specific Western Australian industries to international delegations.
