The Forum will bring together farming and regional leaders to take stock of progress towards our shared goal of reaching $100 billion in farmgate output by 2030. The event will focus on the important role the Northern Territory agricultural sector will play in achieving the 2030 milestone.

The Forum will feature keynote presentations by Telstra, the Federal Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, and industry leaders. NFF President Fiona Simson will moderate a panel with NT agriculture associations regarding enhancing the economic opportunities of agriculture in the Territory.

“NT Farmers are excited to be part of the NFF forum which will assist to drive agricultural investment and development across the north. Northern Australia will have an extremely important role to play in achieving the $100 billion target by 2030. The event will assist farmers and investors to take advantage of growing demand for agricultural produce in a responsible and sustainable way.”

“This is a must attend event for investors, farmers and policy makers interested in the opportunities of northern development.” NT Farmers Association CEO, Mr Paul Burke said.

“The 2030 goal of $100 billion in farm-gate output is an ambitious one. The Towards 2030 Forum provides a key opportunity to reflect on our progress to this goal and drive the policy debate to ensure we meet and beat the goal in 2030”.

“The forum is a unique opportunity to hear from people at the front line of growing Australian agriculture, developing new industries and ensuring that new innovation keeps Australia at the forefront of agriculture around the world”. National Farmers Federation President, Fiona Simson said.

“For more than 150 years, the Territory’s pastoral sector has served as the model for regional development in Northern Australia. Now, as we move towards a $100 billion Agriculture output by 2030, learning lessons from the past will offer insight into how Northern Australia, and especially the Territory, can be the leader in contributing to this growth.

“The NTCA is excited to be part of the forum that will showcase the important role the Northern Territory’s Pastoral sector can play in meeting the 2030 milestone.” Said Mr Will Evans, CEO NT Cattlemen’s Association.
