Developing competitive agribusiness and agro-industries is crucial for generating employment and income opportunities. They have the potential to provide employment for the rural population not only in farming, but also in off-farm activities such as handling, packaging, processing, transporting and marketing of food and agricultural products.
There are clear indications that agribusiness and agro-industries are having a significant global impact on economic development and poverty reduction, in both urban and rural communities.
