Treasurer Tim Pallas will promote Victoria’s investment opportunities and meet with major industry partners on a two-week international trade mission.
Together with senior leaders from the Treasury Corporation of Victoria, the three-country tour includes stops in London, Madrid, Beijing and Nanjing.
The visit will provide numerous opportunities for engagement with key players in the international business community, helping to generate further overseas investment in Victoria.
The Treasurer will discuss Victoria’s major infrastructure pipeline and plans for more jobs and investment.
Victoria has the fastest growing economy in the nation and has contributed almost a third of national economic growth since the Labor Government was first elected in November 2014 – well above its share of the nation’s population.
More than 478,000 jobs have been created in Victoria over the past five years, with 68 per cent of them full time.
Victoria’s highly skilled workforce and globally-recognised liveability presents many attractive opportunities for international companies to invest in Victoria.
Victoria is now the place to do business, to invest, and most importantly, to secure a job.
Trips such as these, are essential to boosting Victoria’s economic productivity and ensuring our future prosperity.
As noted by Treasurer Tim Pallas
“This trade mission is another invaluable opportunity to sell Victoria to key investors and significant players in the global marketplace.”
“As always, our focus will be on driving investment, boosting exports and creating Victorians jobs.”
