Businesses given opportunity to promote their trade
TRADE and Investment Queensland commissioner to Taiwan Murray Davis will visit the region next month.
Bundaberg businesses will have a rare opportunity to promote their investment-ready projects to lucrative overseas markets next month as part of the Queensland International Trade week activities.
The visit by commissioner Davis on October 12-13, will allow him to be briefed on investment opportunities in Bundaberg and the Wide Bay Burnett.
The visit will also include a tour of the Port of Bundaberg and a meeting with the Port Trade Development Group to outline the growth and export opportunities from our broader region.
Meetings to be held with the commissioner will update him on key industries for which the region is renowned including food and beverage production, tourism and international education.
Bundaberg Mayor Mal Forman said this was a chance to showcase opportunities requiring further capital investment as well as sowing the seeds for future economic and trade growth.
"Having a TIQ trade commissioner visit us from such an economically significant region of Asia is an opportunity we are very pleased to be involved in," he said.
Council is now calling on all private sector proponents with investment ready projects in the region wishing to be involved with the visit, to contact council's economic development team by phone at 1300 883 699 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
