New council to improve state agriculture policy
QUEENSLAND farmers and their communities are one step closer to achieving a vision for the future of agriculture following the State Government’s establishment of the Agricultural Ministerial Advisory Council (AgMAC).
QFF president Stuart Armitage said QFF and industry members, advocates for the council’s establishment, were looking forward to working with government to progress and resolve agricultural issues and build a more strategic approach by government towards the sector.
“Many of the issues impacting on agriculture are complex, with various competing government policy priorities and objectives. AgMAC provides a forum to address these cross-portfolio challenges and achieve a more synergistic government policy for agriculture,” Mr Armitage said.
