Agritech in New Zealand Industry Transformation Plan

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) has published the final draft of the Agritech in New Zealand Industry Transformation Plan. You can view and download it here. The recommendations contained in the final draft were due in part to the extensive feedback received from a number of regional industry workshops organised through 2019. Transformation of the country’s agritech sector will only happen if industry, the research community and the Government work together.

The ITP taskforce and AgriTech New Zealand are now planning three new workshops to share details of the actions and initiatives. Taskforce lead, David Downs, will facilitate the workshops, seeking industry input into how best to deliver the recommendations. I will share some insights of the next phase of the plan’s delivery and how AgriTech New Zealand will be supporting it.

If you want to be part of the Agritech ITP and engage directly, please register for one of the three FREE workshops on 3 March in Auckland, 9 March in Hamilton and 10 March in Lincoln
