Home to a wealth of world-class expertise and knowledge, Queensland is well-positioned to continue building new strengths and global innovations across a range of emerging industries. 

Queensland’s business community is at the forefront of innovation and commercialisation with a well-equipped, skilled workforce driven by globally renowned research and development facilities, knowledge precincts and universities, including four listed in the top 55 young universities in the world (under 50 years old).

Queensland’s flourishing and rigorous academic landscape, renowned for ground-breaking research and development, is making its mark internationally as a place driven by commercially minded expertise and excellence.  

Expo 2025 Osaka’s theme of ‘Designing Future Society for our Lives’ is a perfect fit with Queensland, reflecting the state government’s commitment to building a thriving renewable energy industry with targets of 80 percent renewable energy by 2035 and Net Zero by 2050.

The Queensland Government has made significant investments in renewables, underlined by the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan. This is driving the emergence of new-energy industries, which have become feasible with a decarbonised grid.

In addition, the substantial opportunities statewide ahead of the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games. 

Queensland is ready to welcome more exceptional global partners and astute investors to help deliver an Olympic legacy for the state, Australia and the wider Pacific region. 
There has never been a better time to partner with Queensland. We look forward to meeting you at Expo 2025 Osaka.
