A new web portal is providing the information and services Queensland agricultural producers need to grow their businesses, including those wanting to export or seek investment.
Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries Mark Furner said the new One-stop service for agricultural development and investment would help break down barriers preventing agri-innovators from turning their business dreams into reality.
‘If you are looking to grow your business or expand, this site is your gateway to everything you need to make that happen,’ Mr Furner said.
‘It provides the latest information on government services, agribusiness support, mapping tools and funding, agricultural processing and manufacturing, and trade, investment and export.’
Mr Furner said a key aim of the new website was to attract agribusiness investment to Queensland, and create jobs and opportunities in regional and rural areas.
The service is free and is open to new and existing agribusinesses looking to diversify, intensify or expand their existing holdings.
The service supports developments across the entire supply chain, including processing or logistics proposals, and agtech and innovation solutions or services.
The One-stop service portal was launched in January this year.
Agriculture is identified as an export strength in the Queensland Trade and Investment Strategy 2017–2022.
Queensland agricultural producers seeking export or investment advice can also connect with TIQ.
