Agri­cul­ture sum­mit com­ing to Wan­garatta

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - NEWS -

A ONE day sum­mit fo­cus­ing on busi­ness agri­cul­ture is com­ing to Wan­garatta this month.

Aimed at iden­ti­fy­ing the key sec­tors that con­trib­ute to the wealth of the North East re­gion – and in turn, how those sec­tors are man­ag­ing a chang­ing econ­omy, cli­mate and so­cial en­vi­ron­ment while po­si­tion­ing them­selves for growth.

The one day event will fur­ther ex­plore is­sues pre­vi­ously at the Ovens and Murray Re­gional Fo­rum and the North East Agribusi­ness din­ner, where the com­mu­nity high­lighted the need to pur­sue and sup­port op­por­tu­ni­ties in the agri­cul­ture sec­tor that would strengthen the broader econ­omy.

The sum­mit aims to bring to­gether key in­dus­try lead­ers and re­gional agribusi­ness par­tic­i­pants to bet­ter un­der­stand the role these sec­tors play in North East Vic­to­ria.

The day will ex­plore the value, ac­tiv­i­ties, op­por­tu­ni­ties and em­ploy­ment these in­dus­tries and or­gan­i­sa­tions bring to the re­gion.

Top­ics cov­ered will in­clude:

the role in­dus­try lead­ers play and their scale;

their op­er­a­tional ac­tiv­i­ties, com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage and why choose the North East; and

their suc­cess­ful strate­gies for man­ag­ing a chang­ing econ­omy, cli­mate and so­cial en­vi­ron­ment.

To be held at the Wan­garatta Re­gional Study Cen­tre on Novem­ber 21, the sum­mit will be­gin with predin­ner drinks from 5pm.
