Australian citrus industry sees China as a major player

Surf where the big waves are – and for Australian citrus, that’s China. That’s the philosophy of BRIC (Brazil Russia India China) expert David Thomas, keynote speaker at the Citrus Australia National Issues Forum in Melbourne on 28 and 29 October.

“China is a big, growing market with changing dynamics and great opportunity for Australian companies – especially those companies producing food,” says David. “The Chinese have always been concerned about the quality of their local food – 73 per cent of Shanghai residents say the local food is unsafe – and they are constantly looking for opportunities to get access to high quality fresh food from a reliable source. Australia is one such source.”

David is the chief executive officer of Think Global Consulting and specialises in engaging with companies, investors and businesses in each of the rapidly growing BRIC markets. David will join growers, packers, exporters and other industry participants to workshop strategic issues at the inaugural event at Melbourne’s Ibis Hotel, Therry Street.

Day one (Monday, 28 October) includes members-only sessions and the Citrus Australia annual general meeting concluding with open sessions and a networking dinner. Day two (Tuesday, 29 October) is open to all and features workshops on China; strategic changes to the Australian Citrus Quality Standards and an update from Plant Health Australia on biosecurity.
