The Blueprint for Australian Agriculture — Queensland’s chance to be heard

The Blueprint for Australian Agriculture — Queensland’s chance to be heard

Date(s) - 29 Nov 2011
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Rockhampton Showgrounds

Queensland farmers, agribusinesses and the wider food and fibre supply chain will be the first in Australia to make their voices heard as part of the ambitious new Blueprint for Australian Agriculture at a free forum to be held in Rockhampton later this month.

The Blueprint is a joint initiative of the National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) and Westpac,  and will bring together the concerns and aspirations of Australia’s 140,000 farmers, as well as the rural communities  and businesses that support, supply and rely on them, to redefine what agriculture’s future will be over the next four decades.

In order to capture the voice of agriculture in central and northern Queensland, the NFF is hosting the very first free Blueprint forum at the Rockhampton Showground from 1.00 to 5.00 pm on Tuesday 29 November.

If the Blueprint  is to truly represent the aspirations of the entire sector, it is vitally important that all levels and areas of agriculture and the wider supply chain have input and
ownership of its development.

The NFF is encouraging all to attend this meeting  to ensure the voices of our industry  are heard and to contribute  to the strong future positioning  of agribusiness and farming in central and northern Queensland and throughout Australia.

The Blueprint  will be the ‘road map’ that determines where we, as an industry, want to go and identifies the road blocks and impediments to getting there. This is an incredible opportunity to have input into what could be Australian agriculture’s most important tool in making our voice heard about the future direction of our industry.
