The China Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA) is a game-changer for Australian agriculture: providing unprecedented access to the world’s second largest economy and creating new opportunities for many of our key agricultural exports.
Unfortunately, a campaign is underway to derail implementation of this historic agreement and its benefits to our economy.
Attempts to reopen the negotiations at this late stage put the whole deal at risk. Delaying the agreement could cost the agricultural export trade up to $300 million in 2016 alone, with untold flow-on effects is loss of jobs and future income to rural and regional communities across Australia.
The National Farmers’ Federation is committed to helping Australian farmers tell the story of how ChAFTA will provide agriculture with a brighter future.
To tell this story the NFF will be launching a media campaign to share with the Australian community the positive impact on rural Australia of the Free Trade Agreement with China and the impact in terms of jobs and economic growth if it was delayed.
The NFF needs your help to launch this media campaign by registering your support for the Free Trade Agreement and donating to the campaign fund.
