Ag and Trade minister Damien O’Connor is back from a whistle stop tour of Japan and while trade was the focus of the past few days the plight of East Coast farmers is still front of mind. Damien O’Connor says it is still physically impossible to get people into some places and he says as much as can be done is being done. He says we have to reach out in anyway to those who are or feel isolated. Damien O’Connor says the money is there for those who qualify for it. Mr O’Connor has just got back from a quick trip to Japan for trade talks on the Trans Pacific Partnership and says its important to have those face to face meetings after years of on line connections.
