Toowoomba Regional Council to explore opportunities for region with Access Hong Kong

Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) will join Access Hong Kong in September to explore the opportunities for the region in key industries.

Mayor Paul Antonio said he was delighted to be flying the Toowoomba Region’s flag in Hong Kong when the Qantas 747 leaves Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport in just 12 weeks.

“As a region, we punch well above our weight in agricultural production and food processing, in education, in medical care, and as we look to increase our tourism market, we are in a remarkable position to take our offering to the world,” Mayor Antonio said.

“With Hong Kong as Asia’s world city and a hub for international business, trade, tourism and investment, Access Hong Kong is a remarkable opportunity for producers and business people in our region to further connect with the Asian market and to establish relationships that will benefit our regional economy for many years to come.”

TRC is the third council to join the delegation, with Goondiwindi Regional Council and Western Downs Regional Council also aboard.

An updated program has today been released along with more information including the Asia Fruit Logistica program where the Darling Downs will be showcased on the world stage as part of the Australia pavilion. Explore the program and event here.

Delegates will also close the export loop on a tour of the Cathay Pacific Cargo Terminal where produce sent from Wellcamp Airport on Tuesday nights flies into Hong Kong.

Access Hong Kong is set to activate opportunities in agriculture and food, energy and resources, as well as investment and tourism streams.

For businesses that are unable to join us for the week but would like to join us on the flight for high-altitude networking, one-way tickets are now available. For delegates looking to bring their spouse, a special package has been designed.
