Missed Outlook 2014? Watch it all online now
7 April 2014
If you missed this year's ABARES Outlook Conference, held in Canberra in early March, you can now watch all the presentations and discussions online through YouTube.
The Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) Outlook Conference is Australia's premier agricultural conference - combining analysis of economic and trade data from experts across the globe with the on-farm perspective of Australian producers.
ABARES Executive Director Karen Schneider said the full presentations from each speaker have now been uploaded to YouTube, including all the question and answer sessions and discussion panels.
"Every year a huge range of data is released to decision-makers across the Australian agricultural sector. This conference is designed to make sense of that data.
"Outlook 2014 combines presentations from national and international experts with the experience of Australian primary producers to deliver a comprehensive analysis of the national agricultural sector."
Ms Schneider said the YouTube channel, accompanied by presentations and full transcripts of the Outlook 2014 sessions, ensured that this information was available to everyone with an interest in the future of the industries.
"Our theme this year was 'realising the opportunities' so many of our presentations focused on emerging markets for Australian agriculture and opportunities for Australian producers," Ms Schneider said.
International presenters included Joseph W Glauber from the United States Department of Agriculture, Ken Ash from the OECD, Tassos Haniotis from the European Commission, and Yiping Huang from Peking University.
The Minister for Agriculture, Barnaby Joyce, was the keynote speaker at the event and Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development, Warren Truss, opened the second day of the Conference.
