Australian Delegation visits dock10

dock10 was delighted to welcome a trade delegation from Australia this month. Led by His Excellency, Hon. Stephen Smith, Australian High Commissioner to UK, the delegation included trade and investment representatives from the Australian states of New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.

The aim of the visit was to support the Australia-UK Free Trade Agreement, convening key UK regional stakeholders with a view to advancing economic, commercial, cultural, and academic ties with Australia and Australian states and territories. As part of their visit, the Australian delegation was given a tour of dock10, the UK's leading television facility. This highlighted Media City UK as an important regional hub for media and technical innovation in the sector, where some of the UK's most popular and successful television programmes are made.

The visit helped the Australian delegation to understand the opportunities on offer in the region, fostering an enhanced relationship with local authorities, key stakeholders, and businesses to help develop trade and investment opportunities between Australia and the UK regions.
