Event overview

What is the role of agriculture in our return to economic prosperity? It’s an industry which exports 75 per cent of what it produces, is no stranger to long term challenges and is instrumental to the success of regional Australia.
Opportunities identified by the CSIRO and the National Farmers’ Federation highlight the value of the sector and the possibility of creating a $100 billion industry.
That potential depends on public and private investment, the right policy framework and a coordinated approach to global markets and how Australia navigates our changing region and world.
Hear from those leading the charge to realise the full potential of Australian food production and agribusiness when we interrogate: 

  • The major growth opportunities for the sector, the drivers of growth and how the current pandemic has changed the sector;
  • Changes in consumer expectations and behaviours; and
  • The vulnerability highlighted by COVID-19 - what Australian agriculture’s continued dependency on world commodity markets means for the future.
