Australia increases its aid by A $ 1.8 billion

Australia's government pledged $ 1.8 billion ($ 1.35 billion) for agriculture last Sunday. Australia's east is suffering from a severe drought.
Prime Minister Turnbull pledged additional support to the already committed $ 576 million during a visit to Forbes, a city in New South Wales that suffers particularly from drought.
Funds will be made available for infrastructure projects. In addition, agriculture should receive tax breaks and low-interest loans of up to A $ 2 million.
Money will also be provided to the National Bureau of Meteorology to develop weather guides to help farmers plan.
The announcement comes two weeks after the federal government announced its latest aid package and the state of New South Wales has also provided more than $ 1 billion to help farmers.
