Trade 2018 on show to Chinese delegation

Delegates from China’s Torch High Technology Industry Development Centre visited Queensland this week.

The world-leading entrepreneurial Torch Program has helped kick-start Chinese high-tech innovation and start-ups, having established more than 150 national level high-tech precincts hosting half a million businesses.

While in South-East Queensland, the delegation were shown the range of trade and investment opportunities which exist within Trade 2018, the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games’ trade and investment program.

The Torch Program delegation toured health, education and research facilities while in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast, including a visit to the Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct to explore collaboration and partnership opportunities post-Games.

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games are helping realise an important economic legacy for Queensland through the development of commercial relationships with countries such as China, ensuring GC2018 benefits extend beyond our Commonwealth partners.
