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

Following the success of last week’s Kimberley Industry Forum in Broome, the PGA is coordinating a similar event in Geraldton on Friday 24 June to keep the pressure on the Federal Government to overturn the ban on Live Exports to Indonesia.
