Catherine Rogers  spoke on  what we know about foreign ownership of agricultural land and its impact on future food security

Over the last few days, the question of rapidly increasing foreign ownership of Australian agricultural land has been headline news, highlighting the lack of planning by State and Federal governments for Australia’s future food security.

Catherine Rogers has been investigating sovereign wealth funds and the implications for Australian farming land, and will speak about who is taking up this issue and what is currently on the table to ensure we don’t ‘sell the farm’ before we notice.
