The Victorian Connection in India
|22 February 2012 |
|The Victorian Connection, a new Victorian Government initiative to develop investment and trade opportunities in global markets, was launched today in India. This new program is intended to help Victorian expatriates and people who have lived or studied in Victoria and who now live and work overseas stay connected with each other and everything Victorian.|
|The network will no only support those with a connection to Victoria in forming professional and personal networks but it will provide market intelligence and identify and develop new investment, trade and joint venture opportunities between Victoria and their respective regions. |
The initiative will also encourage members to become ambassadors at large for Victoria, helping to raise the State's profile and awareness of what it can offer in global markets.
The Victorian Connection is one of several new initiatives the Victorian Government has instigated as part of its new Trade Engagement Program. The Program steps up Victoria's focus on key global markets where the state’s capabilities are a good match for local demands and can deliver more export, investment and jobs growth.
