Port City should look to India

GLADSTONE businesses have been asked to trade or invest in India.

As part of Export Week, the Queensland Trade and Investment Commissioner for India Rod Solomons was in Gladstone yesterday encouraging trade opportunities in India.

“I understand that things in Gladstone are a little depressed so I think people could be looking at export opportunities, and that includes education,” Mr Solomons said.

“One of the key things they are looking for in India at the moment is vocational education. The Australian and Indian governments signed an understanding to look at the higher education system here and to use that as a blue print for India.”

Gladstone Economic and Industry Development Board chief executive Dr Ken King said India was a significant growing market for Queensland exporters.

“India is also a key source for foreign direct investment In Queensland with companies like Adani partnering with Linc Energy in a $3billion deal,” Dr King said.
