Recognition for farmers

FOR too long, agriculture has taken a back seat to matter of national importance.

Political parties driven by polls in an attempt to hold on to power have bowed to inner-city thinking and policies that have made life harder for those who feed our nation.

The release of the federal government’s Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper finally addresses some of the key issues which had been ignored on the ALP/Greens coalition.

Instead of acknowledging the important role agriculture plays in making our nation great, they chose to either ignore key issues or, in some cases, make it more difficult.

This could not have been more clearly illustrated thanthe Gillard government’s knee-jerk reaction to a television programwhich effectively shutdown the live export trade to Indonesia.

The white paper acknowledges not just the importance of agriculture to our nation’s future, but the massive potential the sector holds for the prosperity of our country.

As the world’s population continues to rise, more nation’s are seeking food sources from other countries and Australia is perfectly positioned to capitalise on that demand.

The Coalitionclearly takes agriculture seriously and this white paper will go some way towards addressing the indifference of the previous government.
