The National Farmers Federation has announced the launch of the Towards 2030 Forum Series.

Each forum will bring together farming and regional leaders to take stock of progress towards the NFF's goal of reaching $100 billion in farmgate output by 2030.

The series will feature keynote presentations from a broad range of experts, policy makers, politicians and producers who are at the cutting edge of growing Australian agriculture and contributing to NFF's $100 billion goal.

NFF president, Fiona Simson said it was an important opportunity to reflect on industry's progress to date.

"The process to establish our 2030 Roadmap started in the regions four years ago - bringing together farmers and industry experts to shape our industry vision. The Towards 2030 Forum Series is an opportunity to come back together, hear the latest from those people leading the charge, and take stock of our progress."

Telstra Head of Rural and Regional Affairs, Ben Gursansky, said supporting the Towards 2030 Forum Series was part of Telstra's ongoing support for the farm sector's growth ambitions.

"(We have) been on the 2030 journey with NFF and its members since 2018, and we're looking forward to continuing this conversation about the industry's future across Australia in the coming months," Mr Gursansky said.
