Sector Strategies Objectives

Regional sector strategies support a sector’s ability to grow its export and trade development opportunities, particularly as best practices emerge from businesses within the regional cluster. Accessing new customers via international markets is an essential component of business growth.

There is a growing body of evidence showing that sector strategies can simultaneously improve employment opportunities for job seekers and grow trade development opportunities for industries.
