QFF and the Rural Jobs and Skills Alliance (RJSA) partnered with Jobs Queensland and the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries to host the Queensland Agworkforce Summit.
It’s a virtual event – online for three days Wednesday 3rd August to Friday 5th August 2022.
The total value of Queensland’s Primary Industries, agriculture, fisheries, forestry and food is $23.54 billion with $18.4 billion being that of gross value of production (GVP), this is a vital contribution to the Queensland economy.
A recent collaboration identified the current and emerging trends, and critical issues impacting the Queensland agriculture industry’s workforce. The resulting plan identifies strategies to respond to skills needs and shortages affecting the growth, profitability, and productivity of Queensland’s agribusinesses over the next five years and will be presented online at the summit.
Jo Sheppard, CEO QFF says “the summit is an excellent opportunity to network and learn about innovative strategies that have worked in attracting, retaining and skilling workforce”.
