ABARES Outlook 2014, Australia’s leading event for the agriculture, forestry and fisheries sectors. It is where public and private sector decision makers will gather and discuss the key domestic and global issues affecting our rural industries and economic outlook.
Our theme for Outlook 2014 is realising the opportunities, reflecting the evolution of conversations in agricultural communities from identifying innovations and export opportunities, to positioning our industries to take advantage of those prospects.
Outlook 2014 is on Tuesday 4 and Wednesday 5 March in Canberra. Attend Outlook 2014 to examine the leading issues for the sectors; understand the long term outlook for a range of commodities, explore industry issues so markets will be informed and access the many opportunities for conversations, meetings and networking with fellow delegates.
The program features leading international and national speakers who will provide their unique perspectives, complemented by leading producers and ABARES speakers at sessions focussed on:
- Economic overview
- Future of agriculture
- Agricultural productivity
