The resurgence of the political right - what it means for Australia

Friday 16 August 2024

Come and listen to legendary economic, business and political journalist, Robert Gottliebsen OAM, in this special Farm Writers lunch where we look at global trends and their impact on Australian agriculture. 

The rise of right-wing parties in Europe, an invigorated Donald Trump and an emboldened Peter Dutton are symptomatic of many in mainstream society feeling left behind and rejecting progressive politics. Farmer protests in Europe, and Australia, and a growing sentiment that regions and their concerns are being abandoned in favour of city-based citizens’ concerns is seeing divisions emerge, and deepen, across the western democratic world.

Agribuzz is heading back to Gunnedah and AgQuip. It's a great opportunity to catch up socially with people attending the field days, including those who don't always have an opportunity to attend our events.

Agribuzz is a smart casual event providing professional networking and development opportunities in a relaxed atmosphere. It provides the opportunity for our members and friends to exchange business intelligence and ideas over drinks and canapés, enjoy a brief presentation, and mingle with their peers.
