Find Agriculture expertise in Papua New Guinea

Industry

Agriculture, forestry and fisheries contribute 31% of Papua New Guinea’s GDP (2010) and agriculture accounts for 2.5% of land use, with almost 90% of the population relying on agriculture to provide a subsistence livelihood (2008). The main agricultural products are coffee, cocoa, copra, palm kernels, tea, sugar, rubber, sweet potatoes, fruit, vegetables, vanilla, poultry and pork. Of these the principal export products are coffee, cocoa, palm oil and kernels and copra. However, the country’s rugged, mountainous terrain and the high cost of developing infrastructure are challenging in terms of effective commercial exploitation. The Investment Promotion Authority of Papua New Guinea maintains that the most lucrative investment opportunities in the sector are in coffee, oil palm, cocoa, coconut, copra and spice crops. The Department of Agriculture and Livestock is responsible for the effective promotion of agricultural development.
