Ag in the Asian Century

Deloitte’s Positioning for Prosperity? Catching the Next Wave report highlights the opportunity presented by the Asian growth story; a special opportunity for those sectors of the economy that have what Asia wants. Australia is well positioned, with natural resources, progressive farming practices, reputation for quality produce and geographic proximity to the fastest growing markets. However, what does growing demand for food and agriculture products in Asia really mean for Australian business?

  • How will export and innovation play a crucial role in any strategy to capitalise on this growing market trend?
  • Where do the real opportunities lie and how are many Australian businesses already capitalising on these prospects?
  • How do Australian businesses remain competitive in this global marketplace?

It is important to note that the opportunity is not unique to Australia. The scale of the opportunity has and will continue to attract the attention of our export competitors. So, Australian businesses need to take decisive measures and identify the opportunities, build and articulate their value proposition, build key relationships and strategically position themselves to compete effectively in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.

Deloitte has identified five prosperity levers that business and government can use to seek a larger share of the opportunities. These start with identifying the organisation’s current status and reviewing its capabilities in terms of competencies and structural advantages. The levers also focus on how organisations allocate resources and change their portfolios to increase their exposure to growth opportunities.

As a passionate contributor to the conversation on how Australian agribusinesses can position themselves for prosperity, we are proud to be a Conference Partner for the upcoming Ag in the Asian Century – National Export and Innovation Conference that will explore these questions and challenges and seek to provide answers and options plus more. To be held in Toowoomba, Queensland on 1st and 2nd of October 2014, the conference will draw together a range of national and international speakers focusing on export and innovation opportunities for the Australian agribusiness sector, as it prepares to take advantage of the Asian Century

Delegates will have access to extensive networking opportunities, learn from industry leaders and Australian business success stories as the conference cuts through the spin and shines a spotlight on some of the emerging realities around Asian growth opportunities, including:

  • Client Matching Service – Targeted networking assistance will be made available to all ‘full Conference’ delegates. 
  • Investor Portfolio Room – This designated room at the Conference where investors and project owners come together. A fantastic opportunity to pitch projects to potential investors.
