Benefits for Queensland

Trade and investment benefits for Queensland

GC2018 provided a unique opportunity to invite business and government leaders from around the world to visit Queensland to build new relationships and explore opportunities.

Commonwealth nations currently – and historically – comprise some of the most important trade and investment partners for Australia and Queensland.

Trade 2018 aimed to maximise the influence of Queensland during a time of historic change in Commonwealth trade relations. It showcased Gold Coast, Queensland and Australia to high profile stakeholders in key trade and investment markets as ideal destinations to invest and do business.

Trade 2018 built on opportunities before, during and after GC2018 to ensure a lasting legacy for Queensland's trade and investment prospects.

In particular, Trade 2018 delivered:

  • focused activity in key Commonwealth markets via business receptions and investor briefings run concurrently with the Queen's Baton Relay
  • targeted inbound and outbound trade and investment missions
  • an extensive Games Time Trade and Investment business hosting program.

Queensland offers endless opportunities for investors. Discover more on the Trade and Investment Queensland website.
