Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, Senator Murray Watt has responded to our correspondence congratulating him on his election and appointment to the role. Senator Watt highlighted the current lay of the land concerning his portfolios and touched on vertebrate pest and weed management and the impact these factors have on profit and production loss. We will continue to contact the Minister on relevant issues and engage with his staff as required.
Minister for Sport Anika Wells, pictured, similarly reached out to SSAA National in response to recently being named in her new role. Making contact with relevant Federal Government Ministers ensures useful channels of communication are established should the need arise for further correspondence. Minister Wells indicated her excitement at the future of top-tier international sporting events for Australia, including the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games. She particularly pointed out the importance of inclusivity in sports for these events. SSAA National takes great pride in highlighting the inclusivity of target shooting as a sport.
