Leading trade experts attend forum in Sydney
Sydney, Australia, 30 May 2018 – On 21 June in Sydney, key authorities from Brazil and Australia will gather to discuss the role the two countries can play in securing the world’s food production.
Marcos Jank, CEO of the Asia-Brazil Agro Alliance and previously Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Business Development BRF Asia-Pacific, will feature as the keynote speaker and will debate topics including the liberalisation of agriculture markets, renewable energy and biofuels, food safety and quality, and how to deal with China.
“Australia and Brazil have great strengths in agriculture, which places them in the perfect position to influence strong powers on the world stage, and at the same time to grow their economies.
Beef, sugar and cotton are the three sectors in which both countries rank among the largest in the world.”
Former Austrade executive director for international operations and prior acting chief executive, Grame Barty, will moderate the panel.
“Australia’s future lies in continuing to make pivotal technology, policy and trade decisions based around productivity, safety and security in our core sectors such as agriculture.
And we can’t do it alone, we must take a shared leadership position with ‘like’ countries such as Brazil in order to make a significant impact globally and provide for the next generation of Australians.
Food for human critical needs, premium foods and food provenance will decide the world’s future. Australia and Brazil are logical critical partners in this space.”
This forum is the first to be hosted by LIDE Australia, the worldwide business leaders group that recently launched in Australia, expanding its presence across Asia Pacific.
