About this survey

The Capital Region Export Alliance (CREA) is an initiative of the not-for-profit Agribusiness Regional Development Association. The CREA project seeks to identify ways to improve import and export processes and facilitate stronger partnerships between Australian agricultural businesses and international importers. The project is funded by the Australian Federal Government’s Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment. We invite you to complete this short survey on market diversification for small to medium-sized agricultural enterprises. Your feedback will help shape the development of appropriate support mechanisms for those seeking to build sustainable long-term businesses.
