Oysters were on everyone’s mind last week when Australia’s Oyster Coast Director and Narooma Oyster farmer, David Maidment, shared the stage with Federal Trade Minister Andrew Robb and ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr at the Canberra Region International Freight Symposium on 12 February 2016.
The forum was designed to bring together small to large operators and government to discuss the Canberra Region’s readiness to embrace international trade and the subsequent opportunities for economic development. The forum was well attended by producers, manufacturers, potential exporters, decision makers, government officials, freight industry representatives and companies interested in exporting quality, innovative products and services from Canberra to Asia via air.
David Maidment talked about the opportunities in Asia for smaller regional producer/export operators like Australia’s Oyster Coast and shared some of the company’s experiences and challenges to date. See David Maidment’s presentation here
