The Program is currently securing the most appropriate market access arrangements for each participant company, which involves identifying key market opportunities, establishing relevant US channel partners and engaging the necessary connections. Already we are seeing companies that were part of the rst year's intake displaying an increase in sales. There has been interest in possible targeted missions to the US, and the US representative, Ken Rubin, will potentially deliver this in March/April next year. More information will be available soon. Further, procurement opportunities in the US will continue to be posted on the Industry Capability Network (ICN) Gateway web portal, with all opportunities listed identi ed as speci cally suited to Australian organisations. The main purpose of these listings is to alert Australian suppliers to the range and scope of opportunities in the US market. The integration of waterAUSTRALIA into AWA will see strengthened marketing, event management and advocacy support to assist waterAUSTRALIA in delivering its mission.
