The South Australian Government is committed to reducing the costs of doing business so that South Australian businesses are nationally and internationally competitive.
Following the South Australian Government's review of assistance programs the Industry Assistance Framework has been established to support economic growth. Financial assistance to private sector entities will be delivered through three new designated funds.
