Queensland businesses working in the health sector can get expert tips on taking their skills and knowledge into overseas markets at a free advice session on 10 August.

The session on ‘Taking Queensland health knowledge and expertise to the world’ will be held at The Precinct in Fortitude Valley from 12.00–4.00pm, with a TIQ advisor on hand to provide group and individual consultations.

Demand for healthcare currently outstrips supply in the Asia–Pacific region, and is expected to grow with increases in wealth, population, chronic disease and health awareness.

An increasingly affluent and ageing population in the region is set to create market opportunities for Queensland businesses operating in areas such as medical research, residential aged care, and preventative health and wellness.

Potential exports include design and construction of healthcare facilities (including digital hospitals), management and training for healthcare facilities, and exchange of health and medical research, expertise and skills.

The session at The Precinct will start with a roundtable lunch session followed by one-on-one consultations.

Health services are one of the new and emerging industries identified in the Queensland Trade and Investment Strategy 2017–2022.
