Project Scope

The West Australian industry has developed the Export Growth Partnership (EGP), a project supported by resourcing through a partnership between Wines of WA (WoWA) and the state Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) to grow the volume and value of wine exported by WA producers through a collaborative approach to export market development.

The key objectives of the EGP are:

  • Establish a formalised industry collaborative framework to implement the EGP. This will require confirmed industry cash and in-kind co-contribution
  • Grow the aggregated volume of wine exported by WA producers to 20% of production (currently 12%) and the average value to >$12/litre (currently $10/litre)
  • Grow the number of WA wine producers that are successfully participating in export markets (baseline to be established through an industry survey)

The EGP focuses on four key strategies with proposed supporting tactics to achieve these objectives as outlined below.

  • Capacity –build capacity and export readiness
  • Supply Chain – resolve supply chain limitations and facilitate new channels to market
  • Market Access – align state and national resources to support market access for WA wines
  • Program Management – resource the project to achieve measurable outcomes
