Council works closely with local and international agencies and organisations to leverage our Sister City relationships to maximise the best possible business outcomes for Brisbane residents and businesses. You can find a list of major events and activities taking place in Brisbane's Sister Cities.
Brisbane City Council is committed to advancing Brisbane’s place in the Asia Pacific region and beyond. Council’s international business programs aim to improve the economic benefits and opportunities for Brisbane-based businesses by:
- strengthening Sister City relationships throughout the Asia Pacific and the Middle East
- facilitating business and trade connections with international markets
- supporting local businesses to achieve successful outcomes through our Sister city relationships
- co-ordinating inbound international delegations and business outbound missions to overseas markets.
Council's International Relations and Multicultural Affairs Unit facilitate and manage these programs and act as a referral service for businesses who aspire to connect with the Asia Pacific and the world. Contact the team to find out how they can help you and your business.
