GBCA brings members international opportunities

GBCA is inviting registrations of interest in a number of international trade missions that will inform participants of green building developments in international markets, including in India, China, the Middle East and Europe. The Government supported Missions will draw on GBCA's international networks to open valuable market opportunities for participants.

GBCA is in discussions with both Federal and State governments about support for these activities. They recognise the growing importance of leading edge sustainable building in Australia and the emerging commercial opportunities in international markets. Consequently, they are interested in providing official support for the visits through overseas offices and possible Ministerial participation.

The Program may include some or all of the possibilities described in the table below. To register your interest, please contact David Craven on david.craven@gbca.org.au. There is no obligation in doing so but it will help us gauge the level of interest in the activities and destinations.
