The services industry is the largest sector of the South Australian economy and professional services are key contributors.
South Australia's professional services companies provide world-class technical, business and professional expertise.
- technical services - eg architectural, consulting and engineering
- design services
- scientific research
- accountancy and legal services
- computer services
- marketing and business management services
- business process outsourcing
- employment services.
This diversity of professional services enables South Australian businesses to supply clients interstate and overseas, particularly in the mining, defence and environmental sectors. These sectors are growth industries in South Australia and local professional services companies have significant experience in working with them.
The overall result is an increasing level of services exports and a growing reputation for quality professional services out of South Australia.
Opportunities exist for investors to enter joint ventures with successful South Australian companies seeking national and international expansion.
