“we are a federal government agency and help identify the opportunities for australian firms to export their products while educating those in the uae about australian products. there are a lot of dairy products coming into this part of the world and we’re here to let investors in the gcc know about the opportunities available back in australia. with dairy australia we want to keep the industry up to date on global trends in the market as well as innovation and production in australia” he added.
