If you’re passionate about the future of agriculture in NSW, don’t miss this exciting opportunity to secure your seat at this important discussion.
Tackling the issues
Regional and rural NSW is a heavyweight when it comes to agricultural production, yet aging infrastructure could hold the sector back. NSW Farmers will ask Minister Toole how advancements to roads and port access, as well as increased value-add opportunities in regional areas, can expand the value extracted from food and fibre production in the state.
NSW Farmers will also find out how the Great Western Highway upgrade is progressing. A headline policy priority, NSW Farmers supports this project being fast-tracked to connect the Central West with the new Western Sydney Airport, projected to open in 2026.
About “30 by 30”
The productivity of the state’s agriculture sector ranges between $12 billion and $15 billion annually. The “30 by 30” aspiration is an ambitious goal to drive the conversation around the sustainability and viability of one of Australia’s most important sectors. Growing agriculture will not only stimulate the NSW economy as it recovers from COVID-19; it will help pave the way toward a more food secure future.
