The Department of Agriculture advances the prosperity of Australia’s agriculture, fisheries, food and fibre industries and safeguards Australia against animal and plant pests and diseases, with broad responsibilities as a policy-maker, regulator, programme manager and adviser. The Department’s five strategic objectives are:
• Building successful primary industries

• Sustaining natural resources for longer term productive primary industries
• Managing biosecurity and imported food risk.
The Department has a wide domestic and international presence in more than 300 locations around Australia in 13 countries around the world. Policy advice is informed by well-developed scientific and economic research and an understanding of agricultural practice. This supports the Department’s significant responsibilities in facilitating the safe movement of people, animals and goods into and out of Australia while also facilitating the growth of the agriculture, fisheries and forestry sectors and managing risks to our environment, animal, plant and human health.
With two-thirds of Australia’s agricultural products exported each year, the department recognises the important contribution regional producers and exporters make to their local communities and the Australian economy. The Department provides export controls, assistance on exporting goods from Australia and helps to create export market opportunities.
