Agriculture has always played an important role in the success of our nation—it touches all Australians.
Agriculture is one of the five pillars of Australia’s economy and is a key priority for this Government.
The Australian Government has fulfilled an election promise in delivering the Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper.
The White Paper is the outcome of discussions with industry: farmers, people in the supply chain, exporters and everyday Australians.
The White Paper outlines the initiatives and commitment by the Government to Australia’s agriculture sector. It represents a $4 billion investment in our farmers and in the future of our nation.
There are five key themes to the Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper:
- A fairer go for farm businesses
- Building the infrastructure of the 21st century
- Strengthening our approach to drought and risk management
- Farming smarter
- Accessing premium markets.
We all have a role to play: governments, farmers, exporters, our supply chain and everyday Australians.
Working together, we can create a stronger agriculture sector and a stronger Australian economy.
