Working towards lower barriers for Australian exporters is an important objective for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). The Department's ability to advance the interests of Australian exporters depends in large part on the information provided to it by the business community. If you are facing barriers in getting your exports onto foreign markets, please advise this office by contacting our State Director or Deputy State Director on (07) 3405 4799 or fax (07) 3405 4782.
- The Queensland State Office periodically organises consultations in Brisbane and regional areas on trade issues, including developments in negotiations in the World Trade Organisation and in negotiations towards bilateral free trade agreements with other countries.
- For more information about the practical aspects of exporting see Austrade
- If you would like to be notified of future events, or would like to participate in government-business consultations on specific trade negotiations, please register your contact details and particular areas of interest by requesting a Database Registration Form by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Information on the international trade environment
DFAT can help you access information about the global, regional or country environment into which you are seeking to export your goods and services.
A considerable amount of material is available direct from our country information.
DFAT provides information on the international trade environment to exporters including publications on Australia, Australian foreign and trade policies and the economic and political climate in other countries:
DFAT recruits both graduates and non-graduates for a range of positions. The Department offers a varied and challenging career advancing Australia's international political, economic, consular and security interests.
The Queensland State Office does not recruit employees directly, and there are no opportunities for work experience within the office.
