Agribusiness – Australia’s Powerhouse ($70-110)

22 May @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

$70 – $110

Australian British Chamber of Commerce Event…

As a powerhouse driving economic growth, agribusiness is one of Australia’s fastest growing sectors and one of the largest employers in rural and regional Australia.  With farm production worth around $60 billion in 2016-17 to the economy, the sector earns around $45 billion in export revenue, according to the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES).

In addition, AgTech continues to provide opportunities to reshape the agricultural economy by providing real time information and improving procurement, transport, manufacturing and quality.  Furthermore, technology within the sector importantly provides the basis for improved transparency and food chain assurance.

  • David Lock – Chairman, Australian Pork Limited, Mareterram Limited and Odeum Produce
