About the Moreton Bay Region Export Network

The Moreton Bay Region Export Network has been established to bring together the region’s businesses who are currently exporting or have an interest in undertaking export activities.  This cluster meets to discuss country and market briefings, business development opportunities, sharing of best practice and networking.

In 2017 the Moreton Bay Region Export Network will work in collaboration with RDA Moreton Bay’s partners, including Australian Industry Group (Tradestart), Queensland Government, MBRC and MBRIT to deliver a series of workshops and networking opportunities.



Regional Development Australia Moreton Bay in partnership with Moreton Bay Regional Council, Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism, Queensland Government (Dept of State Development North Lakes) and Ai Group (Tradestart) launched the region’s export network on Tuesday 30th August, 2016.

The launch was attended by regional businesses which are either exporting internationally or have an interest in doing so.

Businesses received great presentations from Austrade including an overview of the Free Trade Agreements; Trade & Investment Queensland; Export Market Development Grants, and an overview of the Tradestart program and the outcomes of the Moreton Bay Region Export Survey. Ridley Aquafeed also provided an insightful presentation on the businesses experience of the challenges of international market development and the rewards which can be generated.
