The Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources announced last week that agriculture is now the ‘largest contributor to national GDP growth and fastest growing economic sector’. In 2016-17, the Australian economy grew 1.9 per cent to which agriculture contributed 0.5 per cent. Additionally, agriculture exports were $50 billion in 2016-17. This growth was attributed to the Agricultural Competitive White Paper and free trade agreements that have facilitated Australia’s access to overseas markets.
