Agriculture Counsellors

Australian Counsellors

We have a network of agriculture counsellors based around the world in key trade locations. They promote Australia’s agricultural interests, and help our agricultural sector grow.

Our agriculture counsellors work with our biosecurity, exports and trade and market access teams. Together, they improve and maintain market access for Australian agricultural exports.


  • explore and develop new market openings for Australian farmers and exporters
  • maintain existing market access
  • improve technical market access
  • provide market intelligence
  • manage sensitive policy issues
  • represent Australia at meetings and negotiations
  • resolve issues when Australian agricultural goods arrive at their foreign destination.
