Quotes attributable to Investment and Trade Minister Martin Hamilton-Smith

I congratulate the recipients of the 2016 Business SA Export Awards who have achieved international success, and encourage other local businesses to follow their lead.

Our State’s future prosperity relies on forging successful national and international relationships and alliances, and as Investment and Trade Minister I’m committed to helping local businesses increase their exports.

We are supporting exporters through State Government initiatives such as business mentoring, grant programs and regular international business missions.

More than 65,000 people are employed in South Australia’s export industry and as our export capability grows so too will jobs, as more staff are needed to meet demand.
