Trade 2018 heads north to promote program

Long-term growth is a focus for the Trade 2018 program and the team travelled to Cairns to participate in the Northern Australian Investment Forum to further opportunities up north.

The forum brought together more than 500 high value investors and senior executives of 100 leading international and Australian companies keen to pursue investment opportunities and help the community grow.

Through this forum, the Trade 2018 team gained industry insight to better understand the diversity and scale of the unique opportunities present in the region – particularly across food and agribusiness, mining and resources and tourism.

The event also provided a great platform to stimulate interest in the Trade 2018 Games Time Trade and Investment Program during GC2018 April next year.

Happening during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, the Trade 2018 Games Time Trade and Investment Program will provide the perfect opportunity for government and business leaders to revisit Queensland and build new relationships, strengthen trade and investment ties and explore connections across Australia and the Commonwealth. 

A range of events will be held across Queensland from 3-16 April 2018 including trade and investment forums, business matching sessions, formal networking events and receptions and site visits.
