Western Downs Eastern Opportunities

QGC has partnered with Food Leaders Australia to support the potential expansion of agricultural producers (including lamb, beef and/or grain producers) in the Western Downs into export markets in China.

Following the Export Opportunity Forums held in Tara, Wandoan and Chinchilla as a part of the project, participants travelled to Shanghai with AccessChina'16 to explore the export opportunities for themselves.
