The Ministry of Agriculture in collaboration with its stakeholders will soon implement a new Crop Strategy which is expected to pave the way forward for Fiji’s crop sector over the next five years.

The Crop Strategy provides resilient and sustainable livelihood opportunities for farmers, particularly youth and women, operating in a dynamic environment and contributing to the food and nutritional security of Fiji.

While speaking at the Crop Strategy Validation Workshop, Ministry of Agriculture Permanent Secretary Jitendra Singh says the Crop Strategy will facilitate the modernisation of the crop sector through a stronger partnership between the government and private sector and enhance stronger market linkages between growers, processors and exporters.

The workshop was attended by exporters, farmers, agro‑processors and representatives from the regional organisations, banks, the Fiji Crops and Livestock Council.
