Trade, investment and regional development

Queensland agribusiness is the state's second most important export commodity earner, contributing nearly one-quarter of our state's total exports.

Queensland's $16.88 billion agribusiness sector is supported by innovative research and development, biosecurity protections and rich natural resources. The sector is very responsive to international and domestic market signals and emerging market opportunities.

The Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) works with other Queensland Government departments to facilitate food and fibre trade between countries and increase investment into Queensland's agribusiness industry and projects. This includes working with Trade and Investment Queensland who provide a range of services including:

  • concierge service
  • business matching
  • investment opportunities
  • coordination of in-bound and out-bound trade missions.
