Queensland's agricultural industries make a vital contribution to the lives of Queenslanders. The sector delivers almost $20 billion to the economy, supporting more than 300,000 jobs or more than one in eight working Queenslanders. The Queensland Government remains focused on driving agricultural and regional jobs growth.
The Queensland Government has committed up to $10 million to fund a business case and capital works for a Regional Export Distribution Centre Pilot in a Queensland regional area.
The pilot aims to boost rapid access to international markets for agricultural producers. Capitalising on Queensland's global reputation as a leader in the production and processing of quality agricultural products, this initiative seeks to catalyse the development of high-value farming and processing and grow regional job creation.
The department is leading a competitive selection process with a Regional Export Distribution Centre Expression of Interest (EOI).

To prepare for the EOI, the department is seeking registrations of interest from parties considering this opportunity. The registration of interest (ROI) is intended to provide a snapshot of the range of prospective projects and entities that might be proposed in the subsequent EOI process, and to stimulate comments and insights from the market.
Registrations close 5 pm AEST 29 June 2018.
