Agriculture Industry Action Plan

The NSW Government has launched the Agriculture Industry Action Plan (IAP) Primed for growth: Investing locally, connecting globally

The Agriculture IAP is the first of its kind in NSW and has been developed by industry and the NSW Government to drive continued growth of our primary industries sector and to support growth of jobs in rural and regional areas.

The Government's response outlined in the IAP has supported a wide range of recommendations made by the Agriculture Industry Action Plan Taskforce, chaired by livestock industry leader, Lucinda Corrigan.

Underpinned by the NSW economic Development Framework, the IAP has been a priority action under NSW 2021 and joins a series of IAP's completed, including: the Visitor Economy; Digital Economy; International Education & Research; Manufacturing; Professional Services; Creative Industries; and Mining - currently being developed.
