Comment sought on DRAFT Agribusiness Strategy

Economic Development Pillar

FEEDBACK is being sought on the draft 'Sustainable Agribusiness Strategy for the G21 Region'.

The Strategy identifies the key strengths and growth opportunities in the agribusiness sector in the G21 region and outlines actions to support the industry.

The final strategy will provide a framework to guide both private sector and government investment decisions and seeks to complement the range of other documents that have been created across various tiers of government, including the G21 councils - Greater Geelong; Surf Coast; Golden Plains; Colac Otway; and Queenscliffe.

The strategy recognises the value of agribusiness in the region but highlights that the industry has changed across the region over time.  That means the G21 region derives significant benefit from the sector through the processing of primary produce that is produced across various areas of Victoria and Australia.

The draft strategy has been developed through significant stakeholder feedback with those active in the Agribusiness Sector.

The draft is open for feedback until 27 July 2017.
