Queensland's Export Week for 2010 celebrates the state's booming economy and increasing international trade. According to Queensland Minister for Trade Stephen Robertson, the week-long event highlights the contribution of exports to the state's coffers, including almost $43 billion in merchandise trade. "Export Week is organised each year by Trade and Investment Queensland to focus on Queensland's export businesses, growth sectors, and market opportunities," said Robertson. "It is an opportunity to highlight and help grow Queensland's international business links that contribute tens of billions of dollars to the State's economy each year." Export Week '10 will feature business-focused events across the State to recognise, promote and assist in growing Queensland's global export businesses and industries, the highlight of which is the Premier of Queensland's Export Awards, presented tomorrow night. "Other activities will provide networking and skills development opportunities, and international market information to Queensland's potential and existing exporters through more than 30 key business events in 14 locations across Queensland," he said. This year, Trade and Investment Queensland have provided more support for regional businesses with the biggest ever Commissioners' across Queensland regional program, taking Trade and Investment Commissioners and senior overseas trade representatives to businesses in Cairns, Townsville, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Mackay, Bundaberg, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Logan, Toowoomba, Brisbane Northside and Mount Isa.
