Australia is a key player in the fast-growing Asia-Pacific region, but also works closely with the UK on political and economic issues. Australia is ranked by the World Bank as the 10th easiest country in which to do business. Around 1,000 UK companies are doing business in Australia each day. More and more British companies have begun to benefit from the countries market strength and similar business culture. The country’s geostrategic position also makes it an ideal regional base for British businesses looking to further expand in the Asia-Pacific region.

Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and also the 3rd most populated city in the country. The port, located in the suburb of Brisbane, is one of the busiest ports in Australia and growing at a rapid pace. There are currently 7 dedicated container berths in the port with a further 2 being developed. The city’s proximity to Asian and regional markets also makes it an important economic hub.
