Potato leadership and development mission 2015 – China (PT14701)
What was it all about?
The leadership and development mission supported by this project in 2015 saw nine potato growers from across Australia selected to represent the seed, fresh and processing sectors of the potato industry on the global stage. A highlight was attendance at the ninth World Potato Congress in Beijing during July 2015, which provided a deep insight into the international potato industry. Further tour activities also provided the chance to learn about the Chinese potato industry.
The mission aimed to increase the overall knowledge of international trends and developments, giving the Australian potato industry the opportunity to adopt best practices that could advance local growing procedures and increase the efficiency of the local industry.
Participants on the 2015 Potato Leadership and Development Mission gained a wealth of information to enhance domestic growing operations.
Following the mission, growers took away new contacts, business partners and information to use within their own growing operations in Australia and share with the broader Australian potato sector.
