The RED Toolbox is a national collaboration platform supporting Australia's productive industries - agriculture, creative industries, defence, ICT, manufacturing, medical and health, METS, smart-trades and tourism - developed in Brisbane by Digital Business Insights.
There is also a spin-off site, the EXPORT Toolbox, a national export platform showcasing 5,000 Australian producers to markets across the world.
Both platforms work to increase collaboration, networking and export opportunity for Australian businesses, nationally and internationally.
What's new in the RED and Export Toolboxes?
Promoting Australian products and services in India
The India Australia Trade Showcase was set up after introductions facilitated by RDA Brisbane, which is a Foundation Partner in the Toolboxes. It is a "shop window" of Australian suppliers, promoted in India by the Australia India Business Council (AIBC), the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry. (FICCI). This partnership reaches into every state and city in India, providing a great opportunity to showcase businesses from your area, region or state.
India is currently Australia's 5th largest market for goods and 6th for services, and trade between both countries will only grow.
India Australia Trade Showcase and New Export Groups
The India Australia Trade Showcase displays over 5,000 Australian producers to India, promoted by AIBC, CII, FICCI and supported by 5 new Export Engagement Groups in the RED Toolbox focused on:
India – Sustainable Energy, Water & Environment
India – Advanced Manufacturing
India – Smart Cities Infrastructure
India – Agricultural and Food
India – Mining Equipment, Technology & Services
Export Groups are a powerful way to explore common business interests and engage in trade.
Businesses can join Export Groups for free. Australian businesses can connect with Indian businesses, join discussions, start conversations around common themes and interests, and explore business opportunities.
Council and RDA partners can encourage their regional businesses to join Export Groups and engage directly in discussion and trade with prospects from India. India is the first major market targeted in the Toolbox. Indonesia, Taiwan, USA, China and Korea will soon follow - a new and powerful way to increase trade and commerce with markets around the world.
