FORUM FOCUS ON REGIONAL EXPORT OPPORTUNITIES

The potential for trade and export opportunities created through Free Trade Agreements with Asia, Korea and China will be the focus of an Emerging Markets Forum to be held at Bundaberg CQ University next week.

Bundaberg Regional Council’s Economic Development portfolio spokesperson Cr Greg Barnes said export market engagement for companies located in the Bundaberg Region was now a reality and businesses needed to seize the opportunities being created.

“A lot of hard work has gone into establishing viable linkages with overseas interests with a genuine desire to engage in export with regional based suppliers.

“The day long Forum will delve into what products can be exported to which countries as well as providing face-to-face meetings with Trade Commissioners from Korea and China.

“Bundaberg Regional Council has been committed to the task of creating lasting relationships with the Chinese, notably through our Sister City program with Nanning and Friendly Cities agreement with the free trade port of Qinzhou.

“Senior representatives from Queensland and Australian trade organisations will be on hand to provide information on opportunities for business growth through exports.”

Cr Barnes said smaller producers should not be discouraged from attending the forum as there may be opportunities for these producers to engage as part of a larger cooperative supply group.

“The Forum is quite intensive but looms as one of the most important gatherings for potential export operators in the Bundaberg Region to transition into the lucrative export industry.”

The Emerging Markets Forum is presented free and commences at the CQ University with registration at 8.15am on Wednesday, October 22. Anyone wishing to attend the forum should express an interest by contacting 41532333 or email info@bundabergbec.org.au by close of business this Friday.
