Fiona Nash, Federal Regional Development Minister, said “When agriculture is going well, it feeds right across our ­regional communities. We are not just seeing the financial benefit of better commodity prices for farmers but to machinery dealers, local stock agents, car dealers, the clothes shops and even the supermarkets — it really underpins everything in country towns.”

After four years of declining employment in the agricultural sector, employment figures have also grown over the past 2 years. More money, a growing population, increased employment, less debt. It’s a formula for a prosperous regional Australia.
