Description:
Overview The world's food and fibre is increasingly being produced within global production networks that span a number of countries. Australian agriculture is already part of these chains and benefiting through export and employment growth. However, while global value chains are offering new opportunities, both within agriculture and for the sectors that support it, recent trade disruptions and a lack of progress in multilateral trade negotiations pose risks. For Australian agriculture, continued growth opportunities will require further opening of import markets, along with freer bilateral and multilateral trade in agriculture and food products. Key Issues * Trade in agriculture and food products is increasingly occurring in global supply (or value) chains. * Australia participates in these supply chains predominately as an upstream supplier - a position which has allowed it to grow exports and employment through taking advantage of rising demand for food and increased competition between downstream sectors in other countries. * To participate in global value chains, Australian agriculture relies on imports from other countries and for our trading partners to access markets in other countries – around 10% of agriculture and food export value is derived from foreign inputs, and close to 21% of Australian agriculture and food exports are re-exported by our trading partners. * Global value chains are becoming more consumer orientated and are increasingly requiring new products standards related to the way food and fibre is produced. The addition of these attributes also provides value adding opportunities at the farm gate, providing income and jobs in supporting industries akin to downstream processing. * Rising populations and climate change will influence global food availability, increasing the need and value of GVCs. * Continued disruption and dispute in international trading relationships can have wider implications than seen between two countries, and may also have wider implications for those involved due to disruptions to the trading network. * For Australian agriculture, further opening of import markets, along with bilateral and multilateral trade in agriculture and food products will be critical for future growth.
