International business development support

City of Joondalup support

The City of Joondalup has recently implemented an International Economic Development Activities Plan (IEDAP), providing support for businesses who are either looking to enter new overseas markets, or expand internationally.

The IEDAP is focused on assisting local Joondalup businesses to establish or build an international presence and help provide access across all tiers of government to facilitate this process.

The IEDAP also provides for the active sourcing and identification of opportunities directly related to Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). This primarily relates to large/infrastructure type projects.

The City also holds a number of free seminars during the year which focus on international business activities. For further information:
