Victorian Government

A strong, competitive and sustainable economy is vital for Victoria's future. It will provide the confidence, investment and job opportunities that will enable a better quality of life for all Victorians, both for current and future generations.

The Victorian Government is building Victorian industry capacity by delivering services that seek to attract investment, increase exports and create jobs in our regional and rural communities. Government. has identified the food and fibre sector as one of a number of growth sectors vital to the future economic prosperity of Victoria.

Within government, Agriculture Victoria supports this agenda by delivering policy, research, development, extension, regulation and market access/facilitation services to long established and mature agricultural industries such as dairy, as well as new and emerging industries.

In May 2017, Agriculture Victoria released its ten-year Agriculture Victoria Strategy. This is a reform framework, articulating Agriculture Victoria's priorities to enhance Victorian agriculture's global competitiveness, innovation and resilience.
