National Farmers' Federation

2023-24 Pre-Budget Submission

The National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) has an ambitious target for Australian agriculture to be a $100 billion industry by 2030 – a vision shared by industry and government. The Australian Government must provide the policy settings, investments and initiatives to support industry take advantage of the opportunities and challenges to meet this $100 billion target.

This Pre-Budget Submission (the submission) highlights the actions the Australian Government can take in 2023–24 to accelerate the growth and continued success of agriculture and regional communities across Australia. Clear alignment and support from the Australian Government will ensure agriculture can meet and beat its ambitious target.

The NFF’s $100 billion target is guided by the 2030 Roadmap – a plan that outlines the practical steps needed to achieve the $100 billion target. This submission is aligned with the Roadmap’s five pillars to provide a clear outline of the impact each measure will have on Australian agriculture’s growth and development. The submission also includes detailed recommendations organised by government portfolio within the appendix.
