Resource Industry Network's METS Export Hub Mackay-Isaac-Whitsunday, has developed a "Basics to Exporting" video to assist the region's METS businesses in their export journey. The video highlights many important aspects of the export market and provides a guide on where and how to start.  In early 2024 we will be running an Export Ready course to prepare businesses with export potential, to understand the requirements of export.
