With the objective of developing high-end products for export taking advantage of the seasonal difference between Japan and Australia. For example, farmers in one country will be able to monitor farms in the other country in real time through video and instruct staff on the spot.
 
 
 
A high-level agreement (Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan and Scott Morrison, Prime Minister of Australia) this project aims to set up a bilateral cooperation structure for off-season production. To develop new markets in China and Southeast Asia.
 
 
 
The agreement will allow Japanese farmers, who usually grow fruit in summer and fall, to also grow them in Australia when Japan is in winter, which will allow production in all seasons. As the two countries have little time difference, farmers in one country will be able to monitor the farms of another country in real time thanks to the video and give instructions to the staff on the spot.
 
 
 
The project will begin in April in Ayr (northeastern Queensland). Japan will send farmers and specialists to train local staff in Japanese farming techniques. Australia providing land and greenhouses.
 
 
 
Melons should begin production following with persimmons and strawberries.
