$5 million to foster farm leaders
THE Australian sugarcane industry is set to benefit from the Federal Government’s $5 million Leadership in Agricultural Industries Fund.
Assistant Minister for Agriculture Senator Anne Ruston said Australian Cane Farmers Association Limited and Canegrowers would each receive $50,000 from the fund to support the development of industry leaders into the future.
“The Coalition Government believes in and supports agriculture as one of the powerhouses driving the Australian economy. This fund is investing in the next generation of leaders in the sugarcane industry to help drive future growth,” Ms Ruston said.
“Through the Leadership in Agricultural Industries Fund, these organisations will each receive $50,000 to send canegrower representatives on leadership courses run by the Australian Institute of Company Directors and/or the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation.
“Undertaking targeted training through these highly regarded providers will assist these organisations in the development of their leadership capability and capacity.”
