The Australia China Business Council invites you to the Australia-China Agribusiness Forum 2024 – Unlocking Australia’s Agrifood for Sustainable Trade and Bilateral Growth

In recent years, the landscape of agribusiness has been transformed by the development of advanced AI algorithms. This technology has the potential to revolutionise agribusiness by enhancing efficiency, productivity and sustainability in the field, and opens an avenue for business growth and innovation.

China is renowned for its exceptional strides in AI technology. The convergence of Australia’s rich agribusiness sector with China’s cutting-edge AI advancements presents opportunities for collaboration, trade, and has the potential to strengthen longstanding relationships between the Australian agribusiness entities and Chinese tech enterprises.

This forum will highlight opportunities for trade in the Agribusiness sector and discuss the use of AI and AgTech, emphasising how this newly introduced technology could shape the future of the agrifood business through insightful panel discussions and Q&A sessions.
