Moree will take centre stage when agriculture ministers from across the country come together next month to talk about the drought.
NSW Minister for Agriculture and Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall requested the special 'AgMin Meeting', to be held on December 10.
The meeting will provide an update on the drought that is ravaging parts of NSW, Victoria and Queensland, and will give the ministers a first hand look at how it is impacting local communities.
Mr Marshall said he would like to see a more co-ordinated response to the drought from state and Federal governments.
"Drought is truly a national issue and it's critical that everyone, from all jurisdictions, band together to provide a co-ordinated approach to this pressing issue," Mr Marshall said.
"Farmers doing it tough on the ground really don't care about jurisdictional borders - they just want to see firm action to help see them through this terrible drought.
"Meeting in a forum like this will be an important step in getting on the same page and scoping innovative ideas like establishing a 'one-stop-shop' for drought assistance, removing duplication of programs and the need for farmers to continually deal with two sets of rules and bureaucracies.
Mr Marshall said farmers should able able to make just one call and "know up-front what's on the table for them in terms of support".
He said the meeting in Moree would also provide the agriculture ministers an opportunity to hear from local businesses, farmers and Moree Plains Shire Council.
"Seeing is believing, so I think it's important that other Ministers - including the Federal Drought Minister - see just how tough things are here for farmers, businesses and communities in our region," Mr Marshall said.
"I'm really pleased that Ministers agreed to travel to our part of the world for these critical discussions and to learn about the savage human toll this deep and lengthy dry is having on everyone who lives here."
