Connecting Cairns, PNG and the Pacific

Tradelinked Cairns-PNG-Pacific is a regionally focused Network established to facilitate the engagement of like-minded businesses trading between Cairns and its near international neighbours.

Tradelinked’s business to business network sits under the auspices of the Cairns Chamber of Commerce with a key role of further developing business and trade activities between the Cairns region and PNG predominantly Port Moresby and Lae. However, over the last few years activities have expanded to include Bougainville and more recently the Solomon Islands.  Since 2011 Tradelinked has developed many contacts throughout industry and government with which it can partner to deliver on international projects.

Tradelinked aims to:
• Continue to develop strong links between Cairns, PNG and the Pacific.
• Connect businesses throughout greater Cairns region, PNG, including the autonomous region of Bougainville; the Solomon Islands along with other Pacific business networks.
• Provide timely and relevant information to businesses in our regions.
