​Outlook 2016 – welcome from ABARES Executive Director

Karen Schneider, Executive Director, ABARES​​I invite you to join your colleagues from across industry and government in Canberra for the ABARES Outlook 2016 conference, where we will explore Investing in agriculture – growing our future.

​ ​

Our theme will underpin the conference agenda. It recognises the need for ongoing investment in the agriculture sector to ensure its future success - in land to increase scale; in technology to enhance productivity; in people to ensure the skills needed to capture the opportunities of a modern industry and to create succession opportunities. On the supply side it recognises the new and increasingly diverse sources of capital available to agriculture and alternative financing models that are providing opportunities for farmers.

Join us in Canberra to discuss the 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.
