Queensland's sugar industry has again been left reeling after India again approved the dumping of millions of tonnes of subsidised sugar onto the world market.
It will mean the price paid for Australian sugar will continue to crash.
India will dump a further 6 million tonnes over the next year, in addition to the 5 million it dumped last year.
But the real question is, where has the Palaszczuk Labor Government been in standing up for our cane growers as they are unfairly taken advantage of?
Premier and Trade Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk has once again been missing in action when it comes to standing up for our farmers – as has Agriculture Minister Mark Furner.
It's time for Labor and Trade and Investment Queensland to ramp up the pressure on the Indian Government to reverse the decision.
Our Premier is more than happy to jet off overseas, but when it comes to standing up to India for our hard-working cane growers, she has nothing to say.
It was the same story when Annastacia Palaszczuk did nothing to stop India decimating Queensland's chickpea industry.
Add this to the anti-farmer, anti-jobs and anti-regions Reef Laws currently before parliament and it paints a dark picture for Queensland's $4 billion cane and industry.
Coastal communities being put under threat by Labor's proposed unfair Reef Laws will drive down production and cost local jobs.
It's almost as if the Premier is happy to see our cane growers and farmers suffer.
If that's not true, then it's time to see some action from the Queensland Government.
Inaction is not an option when communities are on the line.
It's time to back our sugar industry.
It's time to send India a message that we will fight for Queensland farmers.
