Exporters strengthen trade ties with Indonesian and Vietnamese beef customers

Today at Beef Australia in Rockhampton, ALEC Chair, David Galvin welcomed members from the Indonesian and Vietnamese beef industry visiting Rockhampton for Beef Australia.

Mr Galvin said it would create further trade opportunities between Australia and South East Asia and help to strengthen food security in the region.

“We are incredibly pleased to welcome back international delegates to Beef Australia, when they were unable to attend in 2021 due to covid travel restrictions.”

“These are two critical markets for Queensland Beef producers and their attendance here this week underscores the importance they place on trade with Australia.

It is very important as an industry collectively that we continuously seek to grow these markets and foster friendships.”

We were particularly pleased that Senator the Hon Murray Watt, Minister for Agriculture, took time over his three days at Beef Australia to meet these delegations and confirm the Australian Government’s commitment to the live cattle trade.

While there are many challenges our industry faces, and we do not agree with the Federal Government on all policies and actions towards live exports, there is no doubt that the Australian Government recognises the vital importance of these markets to Australia.
