AUSTRALIA’s annual livestock export industry conference, LIVEXchange 2017, will be held on November 15 and 16 at the Crown Towers in Perth.
To be hosted by the Western Australian Livestock Export Association (WALEA), in conjunction with the Australian Livestock Exporters’ Council and LiveCorp, LIVEXchange 2017 will follow on from the successful LIVEXforum 2016 which was held in Canberra in October last year.
WALEA chairman David Jarvie (pictured) said WA-based exporters were proud to be hosting the event.
“LIVEXchange provides a unique opportunity for industry stakeholders to discuss key opportunities and challenges confronting the livestock export trade, including continual improvement of supply chain capabilities, market opportunities and animal welfare outcomes,” Dr Jarvie said.
LIVEXchange 2017’s agenda will reflect WA’s standing as a gateway to key markets in South East Asia and the Middle East, as will the conference theme of Taking stock: (business) adaptability — (industry) sustainability — (community) accountability.
