Happily, one of Kimberley’s greatest exports is its community experience. Tourism and the visitor economy fall into the export category of businesses. While Kimberley tourism products are consumed locally, purchasing decisions to visit a destination are made in locations and markets outside our region. Kimberley is proud to be one of BC’s 14 designated Resort Municipalities, and the tourism export sector does well here.
Other Kimberley businesses and individuals export goods and services to targeted regions, both local and international. Many of these businesses overlap with the knowledge-based and light-industrial sector.
