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 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.
