This Newsletter, we're outlining the steps being taken to develop a manifesto that focuses on THE OTHER SIDE.
The objective of THE OTHER SIDE is to start researching and discussing what opportunities will be available for the export of Tasmanian vegetables and fruit post COVID-19.
Australia is ahead of the curve right now. Will other countries be in a similar position, or will the strength that resides in doing the hard yards now be sidelined by those countries who didn’t go as hard as Australia and Tasmania?
Will secondary infection be a consideration, here or in other countries?
Once there – at THE OTHER SIDE – what then?
Following last week’s announcement, there have been a dozen or so responses confirming that people are happy to join “THE OTHER SIDE”.
Already I have been having some preliminary discussions as to directions and what the guiding parameters may be as COVID-19 continues to unfold. It will be a challenge to untangle the spaghetti.
It will be some time before any strategies are drafted to assist businesses in their consideration. There will be media platforms for updates and webinars that will provide opportunities for presentations and discussion.
THE OTHER SIDE will openly interact with others who have similar objectives. As was clearly identified last Friday at the IFAM industry briefing, there are no competitors anymore; we need to work together to get to THE OTHER SIDE.
