CANBERRA Nike Air Max TN Sale Womens , July 24 (Xinhua) -- Australian mining magnate Andrew Forrest will get a chance to progress his ambitious plans for a China food deal when the Business Council of Australia (BCA) hosts a forum next week to discuss the proposal in detail.
The high-powered meeting will be hosted by BCA chief executive Jennifer Westacott and attended by Forrest, Federal Minister for Agriculture Barnaby Joyce, NSW Primary Industry Minister Katrina Hodgkinson, other state representatives and a host of key figures from the grain Nike Air Max 95 Sale Womens , beef, dairy and wine industries.
Forrest wants Australian industry and government to co-ordinate a response to the extraordinary demand potential for food in China and other parts of Asia.
He has felt that for too long industry has been at war with itself in Australia rather than working to a unified plan to boost Australian development through more food exports to Asia.
As a result, Forrest has developed this plan for an Australian- Sino 100-year food partnership.
As recently as May, Forrest lamented that Australia had failed to grasp its opportunity to be the food bowl of Asia and said the country needed once again to "learn to ride on the sheep's back."
Forrest has a majority shareholding in iron ore miner Fortescue Metals Group but recently bought West Australian beef producer Harvey Beef.
He said he was concerned by Australia's poor showing in the Chinese food market. "We should stop any form of congratulatory language Nike Air Max 90 Sale Womens , we are simply not the Asian food bowl. You can walk into practically most supermarkets in China and you will be struggling to find any Australian produce," he said.
"Our ability to engage has been limited. We need to engage as a nation and as an agriculture industry, Australia has to once again ride on the sheep's back."
Forrest, whose nickname is Twiggy Nike Air Max Sale Womens , is a West Australian who made his fortune from nickel and iron ore mining. He is currently a non-executive chairman (previously the chief executive officer) of Fortescue Metals Group.
With an estimated net worth of 5.86 billion Australian dollars in 2014, Forrest is reportedly the seventh richest Australian, having being the richest person in Australia during 2008.
The BCA meeting will be held in Sydney next Thursday, only weeks before Joyce is due to release his green paper on agriculture policy.

BERLIN, April 6 (Xinhua) -- Many Wolfsburg fans rubbed their eyes in disbelief looking down onto the pitch: Was this their team playing marbles with Real Madrid?
The German team upset Real Madrid 2-0 on Wednesday in the first leg of the European Champions League quarterfinals.
Was it the team that has so far delivered such a poor and disappointing campaign in the Bundesliga? A team all of a sudden working together as a real team, and playing the game of their lives against a team that is regarded as being one of the best on the planet?
For Madrid Air Max Sale Womens , the 2-0 defeat was a slap in the face. Wolfsburg on the other hand is ruling the headlines of football for a while.
Wolfsburg' s coach Dieter Hecking obviously ignored all the pundits predicting his team would be demolished by the Spanish giant.
Maybe some knew they were the 2009 German champions but many saw the team as one that had lost its way in the German Bundesliga.
Players like Julian Draxler and Andre Schuerrle, who for weeks had trouble holding down a place in Wolfsburg`s starting eleven, were working like destroyers.
And Bruno Henrique, a Brazilian striker who was bought for four million euro last winter Nike Air Max TN Black Sale , kept Real`s defense busy all the evening.
Hecking' s game plan in a 4-1-4-1 system worked well at least in the first half and the main part of the second as returning Brazilian defender Naldo was a gain for Wolfsburg`s so fragile defense. Wolfsburg dominated the midfield as well.
No doubt, behind Wolfsburg now lies an evening everybody will be talking about for year to come, but for Hecking the most important question will be: How does daily life go on from now?
It needs a miracle to get into a European competition next season. And it is not a risky bet that the prediction of Wolfsburg defender Vieirinha most likely won`t become reality.
Real in Wolfsburg for long was a team without passion and inspiration. Madrid`s top stars were close to losing their tempers. They were humiliated by Wolfsburg`s nobodies and brought down to earth by an underdog.
The duel of underdog Wolfsburg against the big favorite Real Madrid was a classic case of fatal miscalculation by the latter. Now it is the job of the 2014 Champions League winner Real Madrid and their coach Zinedine Zidane to put things right in the re-match next week.
Wolfsburg were lucky in the first minutes when Ron.
