Live Export Industry Forum to be Held This Friday 1 July in Katanning

 

The PGA has been actively involved in negotiations to restart the live export of cattle to Indonesia.

 

Following the success of the PGA Industry Forum held in Geraldton on Friday and the Kimberley Industry Forum in Broome earlier this month, the PGA is coordinating a similar event in Katanning this Friday 1 July to keep the pressure on the Federal Government to overturn the ban on Live Exports to Indonesia.

 

We look forward to you supporting this with your attendance.
