WA farms in foreign hands

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 4 December, 2012 - 12:21 PM
Farmland across throughout the state is being bought up by foreign interests.

Farmers are becoming concerned at the rate at which overseas interests, lead by China, are buying up WA's prime and future farmland. Paul Murray spoke to two groups regarding the issue that both say that the all levels of government seem to be asleep at the wheel. 

Mary Nenke

Manager of Cambinata

Campaigning “to get agriculture high on the menu of all political parties and on the lips of every Australian” She says farmers are selling their properties to China and other countries - because they simply can’t make a living on the land any more.

 

 

 

Hugh Gurney

AusVeg spokesman

Very concerned by yesterday’s announcement that Gourmet Food Holdings, which owns the iconic Aussie brand Rosella, has gone into receivership.

Blog comments Your Say

  • What happens when relations with the China break down and they decide to stop making our clothes, stop growing our food, and stop producing Iphones? We will all be naked, hungry, and have nobody to talk too.

    Australian soil should only be owned by Australians.

  • Howard stopped it but Gillard reopened the doors.
    I dont why Barnett is not stopping it. in this state. I heard in a decade these foreign nations are trying to move in to operate them and feed only their own. So their will be no jobs for us. We want some answers please Mr Barnett and Terry Redman. Do you think the Chinese are going to reserve you?
