Trade 2018

Trade 2018 is an extensive Trade and Investment Program designed to strengthen trade and investment ties across the Commonwealth through engaging activities highlighting the opportunities Queensland presents.

Before and during the Games, Queensland and the Gold Coast are set to shine on the world stage as we prepare to host the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) in April 2018.

Our state boasts a strong, stable and diversified economy, and offers an open door to Commonwealth markets to take advantage of the Games Legacy Program and all that Queensland and the Gold Coast have to offer through international, inbound and the Commonwealth House activations.

Queensland has well-established industries in food and agribusiness, and education and training, and we are globally recognised for our expertise in knowledge industries like health and medical research. Queensland’s hosting of the G20 Leaders’ Summit in 2014 is proof of our capacity to secure and stage safe and successful major international events.

The Queensland Government and City of Gold Coast are working with Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ) to showcase our state and invite international businesses to the Gold Coast and Queensland to explore opportunities before, during and after GC2018.
