And now, a farm and food white paper

Federal agriculture minister Barnaby Joyce has announced that the government will develop a white paper looking at ways to increase farm productivity and profitability.

Joyce announced the white paper on 9 December, calling it “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to examine Australia’s agricultural competitiveness. An outline report will be produced and comments sought from farm industries on issues like identifying Asian markets.
