Chinese wool association meets in Victoria

May '17
For the first time in its 20-year history, the China Wool Industrial Association represented by over 130 delegates from 80 major wool processors met outside China at the historical Lal Lal Estate near Ballarat in Australia. The development is significant since Australia is looking to increase the demand for Australian, specially Victorian, fine merino wool.

Lal Lal Estate is owned by Qingnan Wen, president of Tianyu Wool in China, and runs approximately 12,000 merinos, producing high quality fine wool and prime lambs.

Minister for Agriculture, Jaala Pulford, welcomed the delegates in a show of strength for increasing demand for Australian, in particular Victorian, fine merino wool and the ability of country’s producers to supply the finest in quality.

Australia has a $3 billion export wool industry, with 80 per cent exported to China for manufacturing and local use, and continues to be the largest global producer of fine apparel wool (under 24 microns).

The Andrews Labour Government is working closely with wool growers to ensure they have the tools and connections they need to trade with the world’s largest market.

Victoria is leading the charge with the introduction of electronic tagging of sheep and goats, which is another critical step to enhance Victoria’s reputation as the best source of quality wool for Chinese manufacturers. Electronic tagging doesn’t just improve traceability and Victoria’s biosecurity system, but is giving consumers worldwide trust in its sheepmeat and wool industries.

China is Victoria’s most important and largest economic trading partner. Strengthening this relationship will contribute to Victoria’s growing economy and will create new jobs in agriculture sector.

Pulford said, “It speaks volumes that the China Wool Industrial Association has chosen Victoria to host its conference. We’re leading the nation when it comes to food and fibre exports and our producers should be proud that demand for world-class quality you can trust continues to rise.” 

“With wool prices surging ahead, and China continuing to make record investments in processing and innovation, now is the time for Victoria to strengthen the relationship with our number one trading partner,” Pulford said. (SV)
