The National Farmers’ Federation has laid down a bold vision for the industry: $100 billion in farm gate output by 2030.
This financial year that figure will total $59 billion, meaning we need to grow by almost 70% in the coming twelve years.
That sort of growth doesn’t happen by accident. We need a clear strategy to capture opportunities and navigate the challenges that lie ahead.
That’s why Telstra and the National Farmers’ Federation are embarking on Talking 2030.
Talking 2030 is all about engaging the industry in a conversation about its future, and identifying concrete actions which will position us for success.
The NFF is seeking to harness the collective ideas of the farming and agribusiness communities in this process.
That's why we've partnered with KPMG to develop a Discussion Paper in consultation with a range of industry experts. This paper aims to inform and spark discussion as we head into our national roadshow. Through the roadshow, we hope to engage hundreds of industry leaders in a discussion about the industry's 2030 vision.
Finally, the NFF will consolidate these new ideas and incorporate them into its advocacy for the coming decade. To assist with this, Telstra and the NFF have established a $200,000 fund to action ideas and initiatives fromTalking 2030.
