Australia's agriculture, forestry, and fisheries sectors make a significant contribution to our economy. There is an opportunity to add value to these sectors, while also supporting regional development and creating local jobs.

Potential areas of focus 

The National Reconstruction Fund Corporation may invest in activities that add value to the agriculture, forestry and fisheries sectors by:

  • manufacturing products for use in or in connection with primary industries
  • processing primary industry outputs into higher value goods.

Activities may include:

  • fertiliser and farm equipment manufacture
  • technologies to manage crop, tree, and animal health
  • improved storage solutions that extend product life
  • manufacturing food, beverages, timber and fibre products that are processed from primary industry outputs.

Manufacturing doesn’t include new farms or plantations.
