The ‘Talking 2030’ discussion paper was released on 23 March 2018 by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
The world is changing rapidly on the back of the fourth industrial revolution and food production is changing in line with this new world. KPMG in collaboration with the National Farmers’ Federation (NFF), and supported by Telstra has developed a discussion paper that aims to consolidate expert industry opinion on how to accelerate the growth of Australian agriculture to achieve the NFF’s vision of $100 billion in farm gate output by 2030.
The paper is designed to ensure that the key emerging issues and trends in the agriculture and food sector are contemplated by NFF stakeholders as they develop the policy roadmap for 2030.
The insights in the paper are presented through the lens of these key themes:
Each theme features a summary of key insights and findings, followed by a series of short contributions from leading industry experts.
“We have partnered with KPMG to develop and co-author the discussion paper Talking 2030 covering the emerging trends and bold ideas to accelerate the growth of Australian agriculture to achieve $100 billion in farm gate output by 2030. The KPMG agribusiness-team involved in this project demonstrated passion for the future of the industry, a strong expertise and work ethic through their professionalism and drive to engage with a wide range of industry experts. They have been reliable, resourceful and developed qualitative relationships with stakeholders. Feedback from farming and agribusiness communities on Talking 2030 is very positive. The paper is a great outcome and a strategic input to our national roadshow to engage hundreds of industry leaders in a discussion about the industry's vision as we develop the policy roadmap for 2030”
