International Trade Engagement Strategy

Consultation has concluded

The draft International Trade Engagement Strategy is designed to enhance Liverpool’s international competitiveness and stimulate growth of the region in preparation for the launch of the Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport (WSI) in 2026.

The strategy was developed following a stakeholder workshop, more than forty local business surveys and interviews, and an analysis of international markets.

The export landscape in Liverpool is comparatively immature and Liverpool City Council has a unique opportunity to develop trade support pillars which will attract business to the region, create momentum for international market expansion and brand the region as a global destination.

The intended outcomes of the International Trade Engagement Strategy include:

  • Development of a brand identity that connects the city to an easy place to do business;
  • Achievement of economic growth targets that result in GDP increase;
  • Harnessing existing sector excellence in health and transportation for global recognition;
  • Attraction of businesses that are innovative including advanced manufacturing, research and education;
  • Facilitating stimulating career pathways from study to work; and
  • Development of the transport and logistics sector to support a green and sustainable airport.

Council welcomes feedback from the Liverpool business community regarding the vision, strategies and actions outlined in the draft International Trade Engagement Strategy.
