Agriculture industry leaders converge in Canberra
24 May 2013
Today, almost 100 key leaders from across Australia's agriculture sector and its supply chain will meet in Canberra to drive forward the Blueprint for Australian Agriculture.
The first industry-developed plan for the future of Australia's farm sector, the Blueprint was developed by the National Farmers' Federation (NFF) and Blueprint partners, with input from almost 4,000 representatives from across the sector and supply chain.
Today's forum, the first since the Blueprint's launch in February 2013, aims to seek agreement on the key priorities within the Blueprint, and turn these into tangible actions for the sector.
Representatives from across the sector, including farmers, commodity groups, transporters, input providers, retailers, the banking sector, educators and Government are attending the forum, which is taking place at Manuka Oval, Canberra from 8am to 5pm today.
