Townsville is the focus of an inbound delegation of Chinese migration agents who help their clients identify investment opportunities.
Nineteen delegates are taking part in the familiarisation visit from 12–16 June, which includes a day in Brisbane and four days in and around Townsville.
Treasurer and Minister for Trade and Investment welcomed the visitors as it was the perfect time to be looking to the north of the state for investment opportunities. Tour delegates will spend most of their time in and around Townsville.
Strong economic performance in North Queensland is driving opportunities in a diverse range of industries including agribusiness and aquaculture, biofutures, technology-based resource extraction of coal, LNG and minerals, renewable energy, tropical medical research and tourism.
Queensland offers diverse investment opportunities and has a number of unique mechanisms to support industry development for investors.
The Queensland Government is committed to attracting international investment as it is a key driver of the economy and with that comes jobs.
This mission, organised by Trade & Investment Queensland’s Business and Skilled Migration Unit (BSMQ), aligns with the focus of our Trade and Investment Strategy on north Queensland and with BSMQ’s regional engagement plan.
Delegates will see presentations from all levels of government, financial institutions and key business and investment stakeholders.
Other activities include site visits and a networking and business-matching event, which will be attended by 20 private local companies.
