NSW’s Strong Agricultural Industry Partnerships with California

1 Mar 2017 8:52 AM -
The NSW Irrigators’ Council (NSWIC) and the Ricegrowers’ Association of Australia (RGA) welcomed the opportunity to re-connect with their California colleagues recently by showing Brandon Souza from the Californian Farm Water Coalition some of the prime agricultural regions of NSW.

NSWIC Chairman, Richard Stott said, “We value the strong industry partnership and collaborative engagement with our Californian counterparts – a partnership that has been fostered over many years. Our ongoing discussions and international visits have allowed us to exchange innovative ideas, information and develop practical and enduring solutions for food and fibre producers across the Pacific.”

The NSWIC and the RGA have visited California on a number of occasions over the last three years and engaged with food and fiber producers, stakeholder representative bodies and government officials from California and the Western US to understand areas of common challenges.
