CTA-PIPSO Announce patnership on agribusiness development in Pacific

A new partnership between the Pacific Island Private Sector Organisation (PIPSO) and the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) is set to strengthen the agri-food systems in the Pacific by supporting agribusiness development and transformative partnerships.
Many Pacific countries have a narrow agricultural production base and are particularly vulnerable to external shocks, such as changes in global trade and loss of preferential market access for traditional products. This results in high levels of food imports, lack of agricultural investment and weak producers’ and exporters’ organisations.
To move from this position of vulnerability and dependence to one of resilience, Pacific island economies must explore new areas of economic development, strengthen their diversification strategies and exploit the interlinkages between sectors such as agriculture, tourism, industry, information and communication technologies (ICTs) and finance.
