To secure the future growth and profitability of Australia’s agricultural and food sectors, ATSE calls for the integrated pursuit of increased productivity and the enhancement of ecosystems through investment in technology, science and engineering innovation.
Australian agriculture and agrifood industries have a major opportunity to capitalise on the projected growth of Asia’s middle class over the next decades by exporting highquality, high-value food and fibre products.
To seize on these opportunities, Australia’s agriculture sector must increase its productivity and competitiveness while managing the competing demands on our limited natural resources (land, water, and nutrients), environmental sustainability, and climate change adaptation demands.
ATSE and AAS believe the regulatory system for gene technology and new breeding techniques in Australia should be consistent and mutually supportive.
