Outlook 2015 – welcome from ABARES Executive Director
Welcome to the ABARES Outlook 2015 conference, where over two days we will explore
The business of agriculture: producing for profit. The focus will be on the key issues that will drive the profitability of the Australian agriculture sector, including opportunities from increasing global food demand, access to international markets, trends in productivity and technology, and improving the business environment for agricultural producers through innovative financing solutions and reductions in regulatory burdens.
Join your colleagues from across industry and government as we gather in Canberra to discuss these key domestic and global issues affecting Australia’s rural industries at Australia’s leading forum for decision-makers in the agriculture, fisheries and forestry sectors.
