said that through a variety of programmes and initiatives, the office assists Victorian exporters and provides assistance to Mena organisations to source products and services, business introductions and investment opportunities with Victoria.
The new Seoul VGBO will also support the implementation of Victorian Government initiatives such as the Hamer Scholarship Program, which is deepening people-to-people links and enhancing bi-lateral relations between Victoria and Korea.
Victoria's global VGBO network includes 18 representative offices in strategic international locations focused on foreign direct investment attraction, export development and whole-of-Government activities the largest on the ground presence of any Australian State.
Mr Hodgett said working with a VGBO is a highly effective way for local firms to access support that is relevant, practical, and provided as a free service.
I invite all businesses across Melbourne s west to contact the VGBO to explore ways the Coalition Government can support your business needs, Mr Hodgett said.
Ms Asher said establishing the new VGBO
was a significant milestone for the Coalition Government as it increases efforts to better engage with businesses across Melbourne's eastern suburbs.
