New Governments have recently taken office in Australia and South Korea. Their initial engagement on key issues will shape their bilateral relationship well into the future.

South Korea is one of Australia's most important markets for agricultural products. What are the priorities of the new government for Australia's agricultural sector and for developing the agricultural trading relationship with South Korea, including Australia's aspirations for a comprehensive Free Trade Agreement between the two countries?

Our guest, Tony Burke, Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, will be at the forefront as the Rudd government addresses these issues and will share with us his perspectives of the road ahead.

The Ministers visit aims to promote Australia's agricultural trade interests between the new governments through:

— discussion of bilateral agricultural issues including market access requests for Australian products;

— further strengthening existing cooperation towards an ambitious outcome in the in the WTO Doha negotiations on agriculture;

— advancing Australia's interest in moving to an FTA negotiation with Korea;

— outlining to senior government representatives and agriculture industry representatives Australia's agriculture trade policy interests; and

— strengthening relationships with counterpart ministers and farmer organisations involved in formulating agriculture trade policy.

The Hon Tony Burke MP,
Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry


"The focus on bilateral agricultural relationships, encourage trade in portfolio products and help address trade impediments."

The Honourable Tony Burke was appointed the Minister for Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd in December 2007, when Labor was elected to Federal Government. Mr. Burke was formerly the Shadow Minister for Immigration, Integration and Citizenship, and prior to that, Shadow Minister for Small Business.
