This competitive grants program supports Western Australian small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and organisations to advance their export and trade activities in new Asian markets, particularly China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and Vietnam.

The AABG program is a key initiative under Western Australia’s Asian Engagement Strategy 2019-2030 - Our future with Asia. Since its inception in 2019, the AABG has awarded around $1.4 million to 80 Western Australian SMEs and organisations.

Proposed projects must fall under at least one of the following Diversify WA priority sectors:

  • Energy 
  • Tourism, events and creative industries
  • International education 
  • Defence industries 
  • Mining and mining equipment, technology and services (METS) 
  • Space industries 
  • Health and medical life sciences 
  • Primary industries.

Western Australian SMEs and organisations that are keen to access new Asian markets and grow their Asia business capability are invited to submit an application.

Successful grant recipients can use this funding for activities including scoping new supply chains, developing export plans, gathering in-market intelligence to capture new opportunities and developing new marketing collateral for Asian markets.
