Queensland's Regions Trading Globally

Qld Regions Trading GloballyQueensland RDAs have collaborated to develop the Queensland’s Regions Trading Globally publication which features highlights of each of the 12 RDA regions of Queensland, around their key or emerging export sectors with growth potential, and innovative industries and opportunities for investment.

This 32 page prospectus was developed as part of the Commonwealth Games Trade 2018 Trade and Investment Program to showcase the diversity and strength of Queensland’s regions to a global audience. It is a resource which can be utilised long after the Games are over.

It includes forewords from the Premier of Queensland, the Hon Annastacia Palaszczuk MP, and Federal Minister for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government, the Hon Dr John McVeigh MP.

It also contains details of the Queensland Trade Collaboration Portal which presents a showcase of leading Queensland exporters, along with information on the roles of agencies in the trade and investment space, such as Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ) and Austrade. The publication was launched at the Queensland and Commonwealth Collaboration Showcase on 12 April held on the Gold Coast. The booklet was presented to the 150 guests in attendance including the Queensland Premier.
