Event overview

CEDA invites you to this critical discussion around South Australia's agribusiness future, in particular the opportunities for Australia to become the 'food bowl of Asia'.

It is often forgotten that SA's economy is still heavily focused around agriculture, and wheat and wine are still in our top two exports.

As consumer preferences in Asia shift toward protein based and premium products, this provides strong growth prospects for Australia. However, a renewed focus on agricultural productivity is required.

The challenges of this include skills shortages, capital constraints and the need for greater research and development.

Last December the Federal Government commissioned a white paper to examine the competitiveness of Australia's agricultural industry and outline a strategy to improve profitability of the agricultural sector and boost its contribution to economic growth.

Join CEDA, as we discuss these and other critical issues, which will be fundamental to our state's long term prosperity, with key leaders from across the food and agribusiness sector in South Australia.
