The Queensland Trade and Investment Strategy 2017–2022 has reached major milestones in its first year-and-a-half, with almost 90% of initiatives underway by the end of 2018.

Launched in April 2017, the Strategy contains 22 initiatives designed to increase Queensland’s exports and attract new overseas investment.

As at 31 December 2018, 19 of the initiatives had passed the pilot phase or been implemented in full.

Strategy highlights so far include:

TIQ interim Chief Executive Officer Paul Martyn said the $35 million strategy would continue to make strong progress in 2019, with an expanded suite of training for regional businesses, a second round of the Developing Future Leaders program, greater insights for Queensland businesses through further international market reports, and improved digital services for TIQ’s clients.

‘I’m proud of the hard work that has been done so far to deliver on this important whole-of-government strategy to boost Queensland trade and investment outcomes,’ Mr Martyn said.

‘There’s still much work to be done to position Queensland strongly in the global market we’re competing in and take our innovative products and services to the world.’
