Trade missions

Trade missions will continue to play an important role in facilitating opportunities for Gold Coast exporters and inward investment seekers directly to international and domestic markets.

City of Gold Coast led trade missions provide a range of practical assistance for travelling delegations and individual business people including travel logistics, business matching and in-country assistance.

Trade mission objectives are to:
• promote the capabilities, products and services of the city’s export ready businesses
• assist local firms to generate export sales aimed at expanding the city’s economy and workforce
• promote the city as a preferred location for investment and relocation
• developing a pro-active, commercially focused international connections program that leverages the city’s significant global contacts and competitive advantages.
