Australia will partner with Pacific Island countries to improve agriculture quality and biosecurity

Australia’s Minister for International Development and the Pacific, Zed Seselja, announced that Australia will partner with Pacific Island countries and the international consulting organization, DT Global, to enhance agricultural trade and improve biosecurity. The program will assist producers in the Pacific in finding new markets and improve the quality of their products.

The Australian Department of Agriculture will also participate in the program, which will address regional pests and diseases like African Swine Fever and the Fall Army Worm. Improved biosecurity will enable Pacific Island producers greater access to the New Zealand and Australian markets.
