Agricultural businesses are invited to apply for grants under the 2019 Australia-China Agricultural Cooperation Agreement (ACACA) program.

The program, which aims to grow agricultural trade between Australia and China, is offering a total of $100,000 in grants to help promote new projects or trade missions to China.

“ACACA aims to strengthen our relationship with our largest export market for agricultural, fisheries and forestry products, worth almost $13.6 billion in 2017-18,” said Agriculture Minister David Littleproud.

“We are looking for projects which will encourage collaboration and growth in the Australia-China two-way trade, which will benefit farmers and food producers in both countries,” he said.

Over the past 30 years the program has been part of more than 200 technical exchanges, working groups, training programs and sharing research and development.

The program also helps our farming, fishing and forestry industries unlock the new opportunities afforded through the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA).

Applications close on April 30.
