Expanding Trade & Investment

Over 70 percent of all red meat product produced in Australia each year is exported, yet by focusing on attracting local and internal investment, there is still massive room for growth.

Expanding trade and investment has the potential to return $3.4 billion to the Australian red meat and livestock industry by 2030*.  

We will act to help achieve this by:

  • Supporting the Australian government with key trade agreements
  • Working with government and industry to reform technical barriers to trade
  • Promoting Australian agribusiness as an attractive place to invest
