Welcome Messages

Hon Steven Marshall MP

Premier of South Australia

The South Australian Government is committed to growing South Australia’s international trade and supporting our exporters. Having an outward focussed approach will create and strengthen our presence on the global market.

South Australia’s relationship with China is exceptionally unique, and in today’s global economy, we need to ensure we nurture our international networks, and strengthen our overseas trade representation.

With China being South Australia’s largest two-way trading partner, my government is committed to enhancing our presence and finding new trade opportunities with China, which in return will strengthen our economy.

SACHINA Connect is a unique government platform that aims to promote South Australian business to Chinese buyers and investors. It is an all-inclusive resource helping businesses connect with the global market.

I encourage all South Australian small to medium businesses that are seeking a competitive advantage in China to use this resource and sign up to SACHINA Connect.

Hon David Ridgway MLC

Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment

South Australia’s future is filled with opportunity and optimism. On SACHINA Connect, you will find many opportunities to partner with our leading businesses in our strongest industries.

Every business listed on SACHINA Connect has the full support of the South Australian Government. The website is also supported by Chinese governments and chambers such as the Chinese Council for Promotion of Investment and Trade (CCPIT).

South Australia and China have strong people to people connections, built on a foundation of mutually beneficial economic and cultural ties. I am committed to strengthening this relationship.

We are committed to further enhancing the 32-year Sister–State relationship with Shandong. We are also working together on the establishment of Shandong’s Australian Representative Office and Mutual Economic Benefit Office (MEBO) in Adelaide on mutually agreed and beneficial projects to advance our bilateral economic cooperation.

I will grow mutually beneficial trade and investment opportunities by opening a new trade office in Shanghai and expanding our presence in Guangzhou, by welcoming more business migrants and international students, and by focusing our business missions on specific industries to the benefit of both of our economies.
