Ag in the Asian Century

Ag in the Asian Century National Export and Innovation Conference

TSBE held the Ag in the Asian Century National Export and Innovation Conference in Brisbane in July 2019. Featuring world-class speakers, delivering practical knowledge and the latest information, the 2019 conference built on what transpired at past events, taking our search for innovation and export opportunities in the Asian market to the next level.

Asian demand for Australian produce

Demand from Asian consumers for high-quality Australian food continues to grow, as China remains the top purchaser of Australian produce. Australia beef exports to China increased, with other meats doubling their export capacity. And, as we are all aware, this demand is set to exponentially increase. In the coming decades, Asia’s demand for food will double as consumer preferences evolve to desire high quality, safe and reliable food from trusted sources, with Asia's middle-class population with significant discretionary spending growing six-fold to 3.5 billion.

Our Asian neighbour’s consumption of dairy, fruit and vegetables, beef, grain and wine will skyrocket as their demand for convenience foods, fresh foods and drinks will drive our food producing, manufacturing and value-added businesses to deliver these products with added nutrition and health benefits.

9-10 July 2019 Conference

The 2019 Ag in the Asian Century, National Export and Innovation Conference was held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on 9-10 July 2019.

The conference again hosted national and international speakers, focused on export and innovation opportunities in the Australian agriculture and agribusiness sector to capture Asian Century prospects.

The event highlighted emerging and opportunities in the Asian Century, including:
• What does the growing demand for food and agriculture products in Asia really mean for Australian businesses?
• How will export and innovation play a crucial role in any strategy to capitalise on this growing market trend?
• Where do the real opportunities lie and how are Australian businesses ready to capitalise on Asian prospects?

The conference again secured a wide range of national and international speakers and focused on export and innovation opportunities in the Australian agriculture and agribusiness sector as we build competency together to take advantage of the Asian Century prospects.
