Title: Wheat Export Authority

Wheat Export Authority
Growers Report 2006

WEAs Statement to Senate
  • The WEA currently has two responsibilities
  • Monitoring AWB(I)s export performance and
    reporting on benefits to growers, and
  • Controlling non-AWB(I) exports (less than 5).
  • WEA does not monitor commercial conduct of AWBL.
  • WEA supports Coles recommendation of a review of
    powers, functions and responsibilities.

Comments on Growers Report
  • Generally favourable media, for example ProFarmer
    said
  • The latest Growers Report positions the WEA as
    an authoritative, independent and very valuable
    industry resource (ie. what it should have been
    in the first place) that should be utilised as a
    circuit-breaker in the current debate.
  • Few unfavourable comments, for example
  • There was more examples of political
    manipulation in the anti-AWB views expressed by
    the Government appointed Wheat Export Authority
    in the 2006 Grower Report. (J. Munro, Stock
    Land 1.2.07)
