Trade & Investment Queensland is the government’s global business agency, assisting exporters to break into emerging and established markets, and promoting Queensland as the perfect place for an Asia-Pacific headquarters.

Queensland doing business with the world

Queensland is ideally positioned at the international crossroad of the Asia-Pacific. This gives us proximity to the growth markets of the world, as well as strong advantages as an investment destination.

Our dynamic and stable economy, highly skilled workforce, reduced government regulation and tax policies that encourage growth offer businesses the best climate to expand and prosper.

Queensland is also the driving force behind export growth in Australia, with total merchandise exports accounting for about one fifth of the nation’s total.
