PGA Steps Up For Live Exports

2011-06-08

The Pastoralists and Graziers’ Association of WA (PGA) will be presenting a petition to Prime Minister Julia Gillard in support of the live export industry, and the valuable contribution the industry makes to families and communities in regional Western Australia.

 

“The Live Export industry contributes over $250 million to the Western Australian economy, and provides jobs and opportunities for communities in regional WA,” PGA Vice President Ruth Webb-Smith said.

 

“This petition will provide an opportunity for the silent voices of regional WA to let Canberra know how important the live export industry is, and why it cannot be banned.”

 

“The PGA will also be writing to all Federal Members of Parliament to inform them of the devastating impact that a ban on live exports will have on the livelihood of producers, their families, and regional communities and businesses in WA,” Ms. Webb Smith said.
