Establishing a formal presence in an export country is a significant milestone in any company’s business development, and in Australia, it is often the factor that catapults international business activities to new heights of success.   

The New South Wales Government announced plans to establish an International Landing Pad (ILP) in Sydney, to be located within the Sydney Startup Hub 

The ILP was opened in early 2024 and benefits include -  

  • An easily accessible address for your Australian business. 
  • Opportunities for collaboration. 
  • Connections with the local technology ecosystem. 
  • Assistance with familiarisation and site visits. 
  • Support with identifying suitable locations and partners in NSW.

  • Clean Economy & Resources (e.g. Critical minerals for clean economy; Circular economy). 
  • Defence Aerospace (e.g. Surveillance and Reconnaissance; Space technology).
