While COVID-19 is the most prominent disruptor of trade in recent times, it is far from the only one. Geopolitical tensions, socio-economic changes, infrastructure challenges and biosecurity concerns are not merely theoretical risks but active disruptors to Australia’s export-reliant agriculture sector. What do we need to know to manage these disruptions, and how can we take advantage of ‘creative destruction’ to improve business resilience?
Reserve Bank Governor Philip Lowe and Trade Minister Dan Tehan will lead this important discussion at AFI’s mid-year conference in Toowoomba on Thursday 17 June, along with Shari Rogge-Fidler, CEO of the US Farm Foundation, and other analysts, farmers and agribusiness leaders.
Join us in Queensland at Toowoomba’s Empire Theatre for sessions from 10am – 5:30pm featuring some of the leading thinkers on agribusiness, trade and policy issues, followed by networking drinks and a delegates dinner, for the full conference experience. If you can’t make it to Toowoomba, virtual/online attendance options are also available.
