As always, evidence and data are critical to supporting requests for government assistance or policy decisions. The National Farmers Federation (NFF) has circulated a survey which aims to strengthen the evidence-base. It would be much appreciated if you could take a moment of your time to complete it.
Completing this survey will make sure the NFF’s representations to government recognise the needs of your business, your region, and the Australian grape and wine sector more broadly.
In addition to this survey, Australian Grape & Wine is also interested in better understanding whether you require skilled and technical workers from overseas in the coming months. For example, do you need technical specialists from Europe to service or maintain European made bottling or packaging machinery? Or, in a normal year does your business employ winemakers or cellar hands from overseas?
If you are willing to help them better understand the sector’s labour needs - so they can make the strongest possible case to government - please contact Lee McLean, General Manager, Government Relations & External Affairs via email – firstname.lastname@example.org
