The third Plant Health Australia–Animal Health Australia Joint Industry Forum was held on 24 November at Eastlake Football Club, Canberra.
The audience was briefed by the joint chairs, Kevin Shiell and Matt Kealley, on meetings held early in the day with the Secretary of the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR), Daryl Quinlivan. They were also updated on the Biosecurity Act 2015, activities of the National Biosecurity Committee Weeds Taskforce, progress on plant and animal biosecurity RD&E strategies, and recent changes to the EPPR levy arrangements for industries to meet deed requirements. The latest two videos produced by the Farm Biosecurity Program were also launched at the forum.
