Commenting at the MoU signing in Canberra today, NFF Chief Executive Tony Mahar said "the on-farm and corporate aspects of agriculture have a mutual interest in many of the policy areas that are a priority to the NFF", including issues like tax and regulatory reform, energy policy, infrastructure and trade and market access.

"By working together with Australia's preeminent agribusiness advocacy group, we will present a powerful, united front to the halls of Canberra and ultimately accelerate agriculture to realise its potential," Mahar added.

Agribusiness Australia President Mark Allison said: "Farmers and agribusinesses are co-dependents in the agriculture supply chain, and a closer working relationship and a more in-depth understanding of each other's perspectives, can only be positive."
