The Tasmanian Liberal Government is taking steps to grow and diversify our economic opportunities around the world in a bid to further solidify our position as one of the best places in the world to live, invest and do business.
Today, the Tasmanian Government will lead a delegation of 35 representatives to Singapore and Vietnam as part of our investment to secure new sales and partnerships for Tasmania.
Throughout the five-day trade mission, meetings with high-level representatives from government, business, education, food, beverage and hospitality, and the defense industry will be held in Singapore, Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh City.
This is the second delegation under our recently released two-year Tasmanian Trade and Investment Mission Plan 2024 following our New Zealand Trade and Tourism Mission in August.
Together, trade with Singapore and Vietnam represents an annual economic injection of well over $300 million and attracts around 800 international students a year to our shores, meaning there is still a huge opportunity to grow these markets. .
As part of this trade mission, we’ve attracted some of our state’s most beloved organizations, businesses, and products to show our current and new members what we have to offer.
Focusing on high-end retail and hospitality buyers, our food and beverage sector is represented by Tasmanian Oyster Co, Three Friends Abalone, Sumich, Reid Fruits, Forager Foods, and will also feature Cape Grim Beef, Petuna Ocean Trout , Roaring Forties lamb, Flinders Island rock flathead, Robbins Island wagyu and Wellington Apiary Wildflower honey.
Representing distillers will be Turner Stillhouse, Hartshorn Distillery and the Tasmanian Whiskey and Spirits Association, with featured products including spirits from Callington Mill, Hobart Distillery, Lark Distilling Co, Launceston Distillery, Overeem Distillery and Spring Bay Distillery.
Study Tasmania, University of Tasmania, Government Education and Training International (GETI), The Friends’ School, The Hutchins School, Scotch Oakburn College and St Michael’s Collegiate will sell our international education credentials to attract more students to Tasmania.
The Tasmanian-Singapore-Vietnam Trade and Investment Mission will conclude on Friday, October 14, 2022.
