The DHL Export to China Scholarship will enable four Australian exporters to showcase their products in Shanghai to international trade buyers.
This Scholarship is a great opportunity for any SME business looking to export to China for the first time or have had limited success and are looking for support to improve their presence in the China marketplace.
China is a complex market for exporters as every one of the five autonomous regions, four municipalities and 23 provinces have different trade rules and regulations that need to be followed so packages don’t get held up at the border.
DHL is the Official Logistics Provider of Export Growth China, a program being run by the NSW Business Chamber to help local businesses build awareness and orders in the Chinese market via exposure to major trade buyers.
The Export Growth China program offers high-potential Australian businesses the chance to display their products for six months in the Shanghai Showroom inside Asia’s largest international trade mart, ShanghaiMart. As well as offering fantastic exposure to Chinese trade buyers, other benefits include proactive events and buyer matching, Mandarin product promotions, an Export Readiness Report providing advice on how to crack a market of almost 1.4 billion consumers.
Under the DHL Export to China Scholarship, not only will the the winning businesses be entered into this program but DHL Express will also be providing them with $2,500 of international freight and a dedicated DHL Account Manager to further assist with their China export goals.

There is massive potential for Australian companies to build their trade to China across both the B2B and B2C markets. DHL data shows that China is the second most popular country for Australian exports after New Zealand and is growing at double digit figures. The 2015 DHL Export Barometer highlighted that 56% of Australian exporters believe their orders to China will grow over the coming year.
