Another month, another record for the Queensland economy.

Results come as the Premier announced a week-long trade mission to China and the South Korea beginning this weekend.
“Trade means jobs. It’s as simple as that.” Premier Palaszczuk said.
Premier Palaszczuk is attending the China International Import Exposition in Shanghai.
130 countries are participating along with 18 Prime Ministers and Presidents.
Premier Palaszczuk will also meet with Chinese retailer Alibaba whose online business accounts for more the eBay and Amazon combined.
