A Shorten Labor Government will provide the policy guidance Australia’s agriculture sector needs to meet its full potential, rise to its challenges and create more prosperity and jobs in our regions.
Australia prospers when our regions prosper. From cattle farms and wineries to wool, wheat and minerals, regional Australia generates a significant part of Australia’s wealth.
In return, regional communities rightly expect the same high quality services and facilities that people in our major cities enjoy.
Labor will put productivity and sustainable profitability front-and-centre in our determination to see regional Australia thrive and our agricultural industries grow into the future.
Labor understands and shares the aspirations of Australia’s agriculture sector: to boost jobs, strengthen regional communities and move Australia up the value curve for long-term growth.
Our plan for Australian agriculture will allow us to work together with the sector and regional Australians to meet those aspirations in the years to come.
