The ANZLF brings together business and government leaders to help Australia and New Zealand prosper.

The ANZLF is a business-led initiative steered by the Australian and New Zealand Co-Chairs, Ann Sherry AO and Adrian Littlewood. The Co-Chairs are supported by the ANZLF Policy Group comprising of business leaders on both sides of the Tasman who oversee five business-led Sector Groups focussed on; Innovation, Tourism, Health Technology, Infrastructure and Indigenous Business.  The ANZLF works closely with the Australian and New Zealand governments on the single economic market agenda.

At the 2019 forum held in Auckland in September, the ANZLF’s Innovation Sector Group recommended Agritech should become a key focus area. The establishment of the Australia New Zealand Agritech Council is the first initiative to help support and promote the region’s agritech to the rest of the world.
