Indonesia says nz beef can fill aussie shortfall with cheap beef – report
Now, however, Australian officials are set to release data on the amount of beef that Australian meat producers are growing, as they continue to look for solutions to growing demand.
On Monday, US Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack said Australia must change its mind on the beef industry, saying Australian producers are in desperate need of Australian beef.
“We have to stop focusing on what is actually happening in Indonesia,” Vilsack told reporters at the National Agriculture, Food and Agriculture Conference in Dallas.
“That’s a critical factor, the quality of the meat and the value for money to the nation.
“That is the reason we’re trying to move forward in Indonesia with increasing our beef and not focus on what’s not happening in Indonesia,” he added.
Australian officia카지노 사이트ls were looking forward to showing Vilsack’s announcement the official next day at the conference – they say it could spur industry demand.
But when asked whether Vilsack’s comments will spur the industry or put off investors, he said: “There is not an obvious market for Australian beef in Indonesia. We certainly don’t see it in a number of the markets where we have had an interest.”
The meat industry sees Australian beef as essential to grow its domestic industry, but it says the US is still too slow.
It has urged its Australian industry partners to make Australian beef available at a “competitive” price and with no restrictions on importing.
The beef industry is currently locked in a tug-of-war with the government over the quality of Australian-made beef.
In a 2015 paper the Australian Productivity Commission concluded that Australians bought a lot less Australian beef than expected.
After three quarters of the past decade, Australian beef fell in price by 24 per cent in Australia last year to US$7.35 per litre.
Australia’s trade minister, Steve Ciobo, said he planned to press the Australian Government on the importance of Australian beef, and he told the conference he would bring a document to the meeting of industry representatives in June.
