Federal Government Releases Economic Growth Target Report
Tuesday, February 7, 2017The federal government’s Economic Advisory Council, chaired by Dominique Barton, has released its second report . While there are six ‘sections’ to the report - the following three are particularly important to our work: Summary; Key Sectors; and Innovation. AgriFood has been selected as the first pilot of their recommended ‘sector strategy development’ approach & interestingly, aquaculture is included there as a growth opportunity area. Assuming the federal government adopts these recommendations, this will have a major influence in federal economic development policy over the next several years.
