Beef and wine are a good combination.  They’re also two Australian industries highly reliant on export to China.

RMC’s April 29th twilight event promises a no-holds-barred discussion on how these two vitally important sectors are dealing with the trade dispute with China.

Tracey Hayes is a former Chief Executive Officer of the NT Cattlemen’s Association and six generations of her family have run beef cattle.  She facilitated the class action against the live export ban.  Once named the Territory’s Most Powerful Person, she is on several influential boards and is passionate about the development of Northern Australia. 

Tony Battaglene is an engaging and outspoken Chief Executive of Australian Grape and Wine - the not-for-profit body funded through voluntary levies that advises Governments on the best policies for winemakers and grapegrowers. The industry has been hit hard by the Chinese Government’s increased tariffs on Australian wine.

This will be a facilitated discussion, with a chance to chat informally with both these impressive  speakers after the forum.
