Businesses from Asia Pacific region will converge in Brisbane later this month to focus on trade between various markets in the region.
The sixth Asia Pacific Cities Summit, held biennially, is expected to attract hundreds of senior civic and business leaders from more than 20 countries and around 70 cities from throughout the Asia Pacific.
“The summit has been designed to focus on commercial growth, trade partnerships and economic outcomes for participating delegates,” says Campbell Newman, Brisbane’s Lord Mayor. “The summit will attract international decision makers from companies and cities interested in growing trade relations and expanding business operations with local providers.”
Throughout the summit the Brisbane City Council and Austrade will facilitate business-matching opportunities for registered delegations to maximise trade opportunities, with special focus given on linking international companies in the urban renewal, waterfront development and sustainable tourism sectors with local businesses.
