The State Government have commenced consultation with peak industry groups to identify both barriers and opportunities when it comes to economic growth for the agriculture sector.
It has committed to preparing a whole-of-government White Paper on the Competitiveness of Tasmanian Agriculture for 2050.
The White Paper process will increase awareness and understanding of the broad range of factors contributing to industry competiveness, including cost of production, investment and profitability of Tasmanian farmers and agribusiness.
The first stage of the draft White Paper will be released for consultation in coming months.
