Politics in Queensland is never dull and this was apparent in the weekend’s election results.

With the dust settling on four months on the hustings, AgForce is on the front foot in pursuing the interests of our members and the ag industry.

We are already reaching out to the Premier and her Government, the Opposition, minor parties, and the heads of the public service.

General President Georgie Somerset and CEO Michael Guerin have sent letters to MPs and senior bureaucrats, respectively, expressing AgForce’s desire to collaborate on its key objectives: a sustainable, profitable agriculture industry and vibrant, economically strong regional communities.

Our strictly apolitical stance and willingness to collaborate with whichever government Queenslanders elect – equally with other MPs and parties – places us in the best position to further these objectives.

In fact, throughout the campaign, AgForce was active and vocal in publicly highlighting the 16 core issues State Government needs to address, culminating in our Election Scorecard.

Our Stand With Regional Queensland campaign was successful in securing commitments from all sides of politics, as highlighted in our pre-election article in last week’s Action.
