Policy sole purpose for Longreach industry forum

Beef Central, 09/11/2011

RMAC chairman Ross Keane will host an industry policy forum during  events at Longreach next weekThe Red Meat Advisory Council has stressed that industry policy, rather than structural reform, will be the focus of an industry forum to be held in Longreach on November 17 as part of the MLA annual meeting gathering.

RMAC chair Ross Keane said the forum would be a valuable opportunity for livestock producers and the broader industry to hear from peak industry councils, and discuss policy matters and other issues impacting their businesses.

The policy forum will feature presentations by peak council representatives from the production, processing and live export sectors, followed by an interactive Q&A panel session.

“The forum aims to help build a better understanding of the role and activities of peak councils, and for producers to raise and discuss industry issues and policies direct with Council
representatives,” he said.

“RMAC looks forward to informative and constructive discussion,” Mr Keane said in a prepared statement issued yesterday.

The forum will take place from 11am at the Longreach Civic & Cultural Centre, prior to MLA's Annual General Meeting, and is open to the public.
