The Mackay, Isaac, Whitsunday (MIW) METS Export Hub is seeking business input to help boost export capabilities and opportunities.
It is conducting a survey of mining equipment and technology services businesses in the region.
MIW METS Export Hub manager Dean Kirkwood said business input was fundamental to the success of the Capability Analysis and Supply Chain Mapping Project.
“If we get this right, the benefits to our region will be enormous, so I’d encourage all businesses in the mining equipment and technology services (METS) sector to complete the survey and be part of a project that could potentially set the region up as an highly successful export hub,” he said.
“The survey is very important, if not more important now in light of current economic environments and will provide the foundation for the region’s journey into expanding export markets.
“It will also provide us with information about products and technologies that can service other sectors and add to our insights into diversification opportunities for businesses.”
Mr Kirkwood said the confidential survey would take about 15 minutes to complete. It can be accessed HERE
