The Australian agricultural sector is a world leader in the provision of high quality food and fibre using innovative technologies and sustainable natural resource management.

With the Government’s whitepapers on Agricultural Competitiveness and Northern Australia, there is strong interest from both government and business for the growth of this industry.

The prospect of rapid increases in global demand means the sector’s longer-term fundamentals remain strong, but there are challenges for business and government to navigate along the way. Productivity growth in recent years has been flat and high levels of indebtedness are a major constraint to growth.
