“We strongly suggest Logan City Council continue to support businesses by sending regular government led delegations to visit China. Logan City has a lot of strengths in many industries, and even we weren’t aware of these until participating in this China trip delegation.”
The Logan Office of Economic Development facilitates international trade missions to promote investment in Logan City and export opportunities for local businesses.
The team is informed of trade missions being undertaken by the State Government and industry partners where opportunities may exist for local businesses to take part. The Logan Office of Economic Development has coordinated recent trade missions to China, Korea, Malaysia and North America.
Our services provide opportunities for your business to expand in international markets by facilitating a greater depth of engagement and generating opportunities for business growth for participating organisations.
One of the local businesses that participated in activities throughout the year provided the following assessment of outcomes achieved as a result of participating in one of the trade missions:
- Developed a greater understanding of the China market
- Contact established with Austrade Shanghai
- Requests for further information in regards to investment possibilities
- Reaffirmed existing relationships with business partners
- New business partner established
There are also a number of opportunities to build international networks from within Australia. The Logan Office of Economic Development can facilitate introductions with foreign government representatives and Australian Trade Commissioners based overseas. In 2013 alone, representatives from local businesses were able to meet with Commissioners for Canada, China, Korea and Malaysia.
In 2014, Logan Office of Economic Development is facilitating trade and investment missions to China, South Korea, North America and Canada.
