TAS Country : August 26th 2010
6 Tasmanian Country Friday, August 27, 2010 News Nasty problems weeded out From Page 3 The day starts at 9.30am and finishes at 2.30pm. It will be held in the bus turning circle area at the high school. Mr Fenner said funding for this year's swap had been pro- vided through a grant from NRM North. ''If it goes really well we might look at doing it again and next time find a way of funding it through the school,'' he said. Anyone participating in the Weed Swap day is asked to keep the weeds covered and secure while being transported to pre- vent any possible spread of the weeds through escaped seeds. A variety of native trees and shrubs will be available for swapping to suit the person's property or garden. ''What is a weed to one person might not necessarily be a weed to someone else, so it will be interesting to see what comes in,'' Mr Fenner said. The Weed Swap day comes just before next month's Natio- nal Weed Buster Week. Federal poll puts bush back in town' From Page 3 Ms Davis said the Greens were responsible for some of the best agriculture policies during the election campaign. ''Whether they stick to them is another matter,'' she said. Ms Davis said the National Broadband Network was one of the main reasons Tasmanian voters favoured Labor. She said the NBN would be a real boost for regional areas and the Co- alition's softer position might have hurt its chances in Tas- mania. All three re-elected Tasman- ian Labor MPs were returned with increased margins. Julie Collins won Franklin, Dick Adams won Lyons and Sid Sidebottom won Braddon. Out- going Labor MP Jodie Camp- bell's successor in Bass, Geoff Lyons, also increased Labor's primary vote. The full make-up of the House of Representative is yet to be decided. ''We're just watching this space at the moment,'' Ms Davis said. AWI eyes Chinese woolly mammoth Now they are looking for more than just the brand, like the craftsmanship and the heritage behind a luxury product.' WELL-HEELED Chinese consumers are the latest marketing target for Aust- ralian wool. The centrepiece of the campaign is a deal between Australian Wool Innovation and TV network Chinese Business Network CBN, which runs a luxury lifesty- le program with a claimed audience of 66 million. As part of a nine-week program beginning in November, AWI will high- light wool's place in luxury garments and provide ex- posure to European Woolmark licensees keen to sell into China. AWI chief executive Stuart McCullough said these licensees would be labelling their products with a gold Woolmark. Mr McCullough said the logo, which had remained idle since it was registered in 2001 by the former Woolmark Company, would require manufac- turers to meet additional quality standards above those applying to a basic Woolmark certification. He said if AWI was to buy the exposure the nine- week program was going to give to wool, ''AWI would be bankrupted''. AWI China manager Sam Guthrie was confi- dent of the Chinese mar- keting program. ''China now consumes 27 per cent of the world's luxury goods,'' he said. ''Until recently the Chinese saw status in buy- ing product with inter- national brands. ''Now they are looking for more than just the brand, like the craftsman- ship and the heritage be- hind a luxury product.'' Focusing on Chinese consumers represents a major marketing shift for AWI. Though the bulk of its marketing funds will be spent in Europe, Japan and to a lesser extent in North America, China is becoming a safer market in the wake of the sen- sitivities to mulesing in North American markets. Chinese consumption of wool apparel has increased significantly following the impact of the global finan- cial crisis in other key wool-consuming countries. Mr Guthrie said while China-based processors now buy 78 per cent of the Australian clip, reports in- dicated 60 per cent of this wool was now consumed in China. The Weekly Times References: 1.
