The Australian Government is encouraging agri-businesses across the nation to apply for funding under the Australia–China Agricultural Cooperation Agreement (ACACA) program for projects that improve agricultural trade cooperation between the two nations.
Areas of focus: 2018 ACACA program grants
Minister Littleproud said this year’s ACACA program will focus on projects that foster Australia-China collaboration in areas including:
- advanced agriculture technologies;
- water in agriculture;
- e-commerce innovation;
- science and technology;
- food safety;
- animal husbandry;
- farming sustainably; and
- exploring niche markets.
“Previously, these grants helped grow the market for Australian raisins and sultanas by funding Dried Fruit Australia’s trade mission to China; helped to establish the Australia-China Sustainable Agricultural Technology Forum in Tasmania; and gave funding to the ABC’s Landline program to promote opportunities and benefits under ChAFTA,” Minister Littleproud noted.
