Must Read

Australia’s Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, Hon Don Farrell, will visit Indonesia this week to attend the G20 Tourism and Agriculture Ministers’ Meetings in Nusa Dua, Bali.

The meetings will provide an opportunity for G20 Tourism Ministers to discuss the contribution of tourism to economic growth and job creation and the importance of sustainable tourism development. Agriculture Ministers will also use the meeting to discuss how the G20 can support global food security and nutrition.

Australia strongly supports the G20 Tourism and Agriculture Ministers’ Meetings and looks forward to contributing to the discussions.

“I look forward to discussing how the G20 can support global food security and nutrition. Agriculture is a vital sector for Australia’s economy, and we are committed to working with our partners to ensure everyone has access to nutritious and affordable food,” said Hon Don Farrell.

The G20 Agriculture Ministerial Meeting will focus on the challenge of global food insecurity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, changing weather conditions and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

It is essential to keep agricultural trade free and open, transparent and predictable if we want to stop global food prices from rising. This would allow for sustainable agricultural production advances and food security worldwide, especially for the poorest and most vulnerable.

“The vital role agriculture plays in mitigating greenhouse gas emissions is indisputable, and I look forward to sharing Australia’s agricultural know-how with the world,” shared the minister.

Australia and Indonesia are close friends and important trading partners. Two-way trade in goods and services was worth $17.3 billion in 2016-17, making Indonesia Australia’s 13th largest trading partner. There are also around 1.6 million Indonesian students studying in Australia.

“I hope to have productive discussions with my counterparts at the G20 Tourism and Agriculture Ministers’ Meetings in Nusa Dua, Bali, and I look forward to further strengthening our bilateral relationship with Indonesia,” Minister Farrell said.

For Australians, these meetings mean an opportunity to show the world what we have to offer regarding sustainable tourism practices and expertise in agriculture. It is also a chance to learn from other countries about what they are doing to address these global challenges.
