RSP interviews Ian Jospeh on how government keeps abreast of Australian agribusiness issues

Negative Government Publicity

Running corporate Australia with conflicting cross currents of economic, social and environmental issues is challenging at best.  To satisfy the welfare of a nation means creating policy around issues that may or may not favour the few.  Negative outcry is a natural derivative of this ongoing and evolving process.


How does the government inform itself to create policy?

According to Ian Joseph, the government continually mandates Royal Commissions, reviews government departments and executes committee processes within the Senate and House of Reps to seek informed guidance and intellectual property around all the critical issues that need to be addressed.
