Back­ing for R& D sys­tem

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

THE Na­tional Farm­ers’ Fed­er­a­tion has wel­comed the re­lease of a Se­nate re­port that reaf­firms the im­por­tance of Aus­tralia’s R& D agri­cul­tural levy sys­tem. The re­port – In­dus­try struc­tures and sys­tems gov­ern­ing the im­po­si­tion and dis­burse­ment of mar­ket­ing and re­search and de­vel­op­ment levies in the agri­cul­tural sec­tor – pro­vides a gen­eral endorsement of the levy sys­tem. NFF Pres­i­dent Brent Fin­lay said it was pos­i­tive to see Sen­a­tors ac­knowl­edge the wide­spread sup­port for the cur­rent levy sys­tem.
