"Vietnam recently gained entry into the World Trade Organisation in January 2007," he said in a recent press release, adding that "the region is demonstrating that it is committed to continued market reform, making it an attractive prospect for foreign investment."

The minister said Vietnam is now considered a leading growth economy in the ASEAN region, with opportunities in a range of sectors including infrastructure development, both public and private. Queensland’s new representative will be based in Austrade’s office in Ho Chi Minh City, and will also work with Queensland’s education and training sector, assisting Queensland’s export performance in Vietnam.

He added that doing business globally meant adapting to different cultures, languages and business practices. Local trade representatives assist Queensland companies with negotiating and developing strategies to address these and other issues. By providing market advice and on the ground support with logistics, Queensland companies will be well placed to take advantage of these growth economies
