Prime Minister Albanese Heads To Nsw Food Bowl To Join Telegraph's Bush Summit

Thursday, 18 Aug 2022

Prime Minister Albanese Heads To Nsw Food Bowl To Join Telegraph's Bush Summit Anthony Albanese and community leaders will meet in Griffith NSW town at the heart of the nation’s food bowl next month to discuss the opportunities and struggles in the bush.
Anthony Albanese and community leaders will meet in a regional NSW town at the heart of the nation’s food bowl to discuss the opportunities and struggles in the bush.
The Prime Minister will be the keynote speaker at the fourth annual Daily Telegraph Bush Summit, to be held in Griffith on August 26.
“The 2022 Daily Telegraph Bush Summit is an exciting opportunity to bring people together in the Griffith region after we were unable to gather in person during the height of the Covid pandemic,” he said.
“I look forward to attending as Prime Minister to talk about the issues that matter to regional NSW and the opportunities that we can create together under the government I lead.”
Premier Dominic Perrottet will also attend the Summit, where a range of issues including food supply chains, jobs, energy, regional development, services and infrastructure will be discussed.
Griffith Mayor Councillor Doug Curran said it was not only an exciting opportunity to host the Summit, but an incredible chance to demonstrate to the Prime Minister and the Premier of NSW what opportunities are in Griffith.
“It’s wonderful to be able to welcome PM Anthony Albanese and Premier Dominic Perrottet here to Griffith for the Bush Summit, and to be able to show them first hand experience of all that Griffith is and offers,” he said.
“I hope that this opens the door for more high profile politicians to visit our region and see the value in investing further in our community.”
Daily Telegraph editor Ben English said it was a measure of the Bush Summit’s “stature” that the Prime Minister had “cleared his calendar” to attend.
“In just four years, the Bush Summit has become a compulsory event on the calendar for anyone with a stake in rural and regional Australia,” he said.
“We are very proud that the bush summit has brought about lasting and profound reforms that have bettered the lives of people in the country.”
Mr English said he was “especially excited” to be holding the 2022 Summit in Griffith, in the “heart of the nation’s food bowl”.
“The timing couldn’t be better as city residents grow increasingly aware of the critical role the bus plays to all our welfare,” he said.
