INTEREST FREE LOANS FOR THOSE WANTING TO START AN AGRICULTURE BUSINESS
WHAT I BELIEVE
Australian citizens who are wanting to get a job through higher education (HECS) are able to get interest free loans to go to university to get the job they seek which is a very good initiative. They pay back the money when they are financially able.
We need a similar initiative for those who are not wanting a university outcome job.
At the moment foreigners are buying our agricultural land and businesses. It would be in Australia’s long-term interest to provide financial assistance for Australian citizens to buy into this industry to keep our agricultural land and businesses within Australia.
MY ACTION PLAN
1. I would be pushing for this initiative to start in QLD first.
2. Getting off your backside and making this an issue is what gets results. This is what I would be doing. In the past we have had professional politicians who have their big grazing properties that they inherited or had family help and are not there to support those who are trying to get into the industry.
3. I started with nothing, so I understand what it is like to build something from nothing. This issue is a very important one for me. I will do everything in my elected power to make this a reality. Keeping issues in the public/media eye is key to change.
