Stay tuned for upcoming events in ACT (7 March at ABARES Outlook conference), WA (15 March), SA (17 March), Tas (31 March).
Further to the launch of our two commissioned reports for the campaign at the National Press Club on 1 December, an online event is being held with the Australian Chief Plant Protection Office to focus on biosecurity benefits.
