Queensland sets another trade record

Published:

Queensland continues to set trade records.

Premier and Minister for Trade Annastacia Palaszczuk said the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics trade figures released today showed the value of exports rose 18.4 per cent to $84.3 billion for the 12 months to March 2019.

“Yet again the value of Queensland’s merchandise exports over the year are larger than NSW and Victoria combined,” the Premier said.

“This is another outstanding achievement for Queensland.

“Our commodities, from LNG to beef, are delivering valuable export dollars to Queensland and supporting thousands of jobs.”

The Premier said Queensland has now recorded 12 consecutive months of record annual totals.

The Premier’s recent visit to the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and Germany, reiterated Queensland’s willingness to increase investment and export opportunities, especially in areas where we have an international competitive advantage.

“There has never been a better time to invest in Queensland’s strong, diverse and resilient economy,” the Premier said.
