Reported subdued agricultural market now bolstered by healthy rainfall environment and dollar value pushing exports in Australia. A robust environment is leading “Local and overseas investors casting an eye over Australia’s agribusinesses” for better returns yielding opportunities in wine, cattle, poultry and crops.
Courier Mail reported the “research from Colliers International found global population pressures, a rising middle class within our trading partners and changing consumer tastes was pushing demand for Australia’s rural commodities.”
“The wine sector has seen volumes exported to the UK, US, Canada and China continue to grow, in line with the rising middle class around the world, and hence why buyers are looking at these properties.”
“Factors driving investment in cropping land revolve around exposure to global commodity markets, geographic diversity, reliability of production and future capital growth prospects. The Colliers International Rural and Agribusiness Research and Forecast Report found that going forward there are several other areas that will also offer potential opportunities for good buying over the next 12 months. These include northern Australian cattle properties; the fisheries sector; the West Australian wheat belt and; poultry broiler farming.”
The global economic environment is promoting valuing ecosystems to support the sustainability of a nation’s overall economy, to raise the middle class and create a vibrant business infrastructure.
The identification of goods and services attuned to climate, environment, business and technologies is an intelligence and competitive advantage. The role of an agile and functional supply chain in coordination with government policies aids can lead to socioeconomic development.
