Trade and investment

We work with other Queensland Government departments to facilitate food and fibre trade between countries and increase investment into Queensland's agribusiness industry and projects.


Queensland agribusiness is the state's second most important export earner, contributing nearly one-quarter of our state's total exports. The goal of the Queensland Government's Agriculture Strategy is to double the value of agricultural production by 2040. Increasing exports will be an important part of achieving this goal.

To facilitate trade development, Trade & Investment Queensland provides the following services: coordination of in-bound and out-bound trade missions, market research, business matching, organising workshops, seminars and networking functions.  Assistance is also available to exporters to address impediments along the supply chain, and to increase exports by opening up new markets or expanding existing markets.

For more agribusiness trade and export information please visit these Queensland Government sites: Exporting - Food & Agribusiness and Agriculture Trade and Export.


Queensland's $14 billion agribusiness sector is supported by innovative research and development, biosecurity protections and rich natural resources. This dynamic, highly efficient sector is responsive to international and domestic market signals and emerging market opportunities.

If you have a project that is seeking foreign direct investment or if you are an investor who is interested in agribusiness investment opportunities in Queensland, please go to the following Queensland Government sites: Food & Agribusiness Investment and Investing in Queensland's food and agribusiness Industry.
