Agro-food Industry

The Government is encouraging industry players to innovate and adopt more advanced technologies in their operations. Aside from boosting agricultural productivity, increasing self-sufficiency, and reducing their dependence on imported agricultural products, these advanced technologies would also allow businesses to increase profitability, as well as lead to more efficient, safer and more environmental-friendly production processes.
