Editor’s note: The importance of co-operatives to the Australian economy is underlined this week by the impacts of the trade disruptions with China. Agricultural commodities where co-operatives are systemically important exporters include red meat, barley, seafood and wine grapes. When a co-op is impacted, the flow on to local employment, local economies and foreign currency exchange is huge. I met with Treasury’s Coronavirus Business Liaison Unit this week to underline that fact. I have emailed members this week with the renewals for FY21. Your membership in the Council is critical to the work we do and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support. – Melina.
