Spring 2019 Update

Global Victoria’s trade missions play an essential role in supporting Victorian businesses to expand in global markets, including China. In 2020 there is a broad range of outbound and inbound events:

  • Our outbound trade missions take Victorian businesses to China to showcase business capabilities and connect them with buyers, partners and business leaders.
  • Our inbound trade missions welcome business leaders from China to Victoria to meet local suppliers of goods and services.
Please note the Victorian Government will continue to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and will provide advice as appropriate.

In 2020, the Victorian Government will host inbound delegations from China and organise industry-specific trade missions to China, including the following:
