Agriculture and Water Resources
The Primary Industries Technical Market Access and Trade Development Task Group has been formed by the Agriculture Senior Officials' Committee (AGSOC). Task groups all have an AGSOC sponsor; will, generally, be time limited; meet as required; prepare material and report on an 'as needs' basis, when requested by AGSOC. Task groups focus on items of significant national interest. This task group provides the basis for a coordinated approach between the Commonwealth and state and territory governments on agriculture, food and fibre fisheries and forestry market access issues. The lack of alignment and coordination between jurisdictions has hindered the effectiveness of Australia's market access efforts and the group will support a more collaborative and consistent approach between governments on behalf of Australia's agricultural and food sectors. The Commonwealth is the lead jurisdiction for this task group and the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources provides secretariat functions for this committee.
