Formatted abstract This thesis examines the relationships between business and the regional State in the development of Queensland's trade with Japan from the end of World War II to the late 1970s. The analysis has been organised around case studies of four of Queensland's principal export industries and the major decisions involved in the establishment and management of their trading relationships. The study acknowledges the minimal influence of a small State such as Queensland on the international forces which determined the pattern of trade opportunities and concentrates its attention on the interaction of State and business in making the economic and political adaptations necessary to develop Queensland's strong natural advantage in the production of agricultural and mining products into a flourishing and long-term trade. Queensland tradition demanded and economic necessity urged an active role for the State in the growth of industry and trade, acting in response to the demands of business, but at the same time having real, though limited, autonomy to pursue interests of its own. The thesis seeks to clarify the nature of State-business interactions and to define more precisely the role of the State in the development of relations with Japan.
