The Australian Forest Products Association (AFPA) welcomes the opportunity to submit new plantation and forest products innovation policy proposals as priorities for the 2016-17 Federal Budget.

The invitation for submissions on the 2016-17 Budget highlights the Government’s focus on opening up trade, boosting innovation, delivering growth and strengthening the economy. These valuable goals plus regional economic and carbon benefits are the clear focus of AFPA’s two new national policies, ensuring that they should fit squarely within the Government’s 2016-17 Budget planning.
