Australian Freshman Alliance (AFPA) Member of the Senate, Mary Watt, is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry. “Congratulations on the appointment of AFRA Senator Mary Watt by Prime Minister Anthony Albanes as Minister of Federal Agriculture. We look forward to working closely with Senator Waters to implement practical and practical solutions for the industry, ”said Michael Rogers, AFPA CEO. Growing exports, investing in sustainable agriculture, and producing productive and returning manpower. “The fresh produce industry aims to grow by $ 20 billion by 2030. This growth can only be achieved by having sustainable and productive businesses accessible to consumers here in Australia and overseas,” Mr Rogers said. The recent rains in Queensland, in the state of Senator Watt, highlight the challenges facing farmers and the need for effective government policy to strengthen the success of the fresh produce. “Some gardeners in Queensland have lost a lot of crop rotation due to ongoing and heavy rains, which has led to higher prices for some vegetables for consumers and higher income for farmers,” he said. “We need to invest in more.” To grow the industry and increase the risk for farmers, fruits and vegetables need more technical access to key export markets. Without a new export market, the industry will not grow. “We look forward to working with Senator Waters to further Australia’s fresh produce at key ministerial-level markets,” Mr Rogers said.
