Prospects for agricultural water management
The future direction of the Department of Agriculture is to strengthen the primary production sectors and to develop the agri-food processing industry by creating a macro-business environment that is attractive to investors. The Department is committed to reforming itself so that it can better serve the needs of the agricultural sector, which includes the water sector.
The Department of Agriculture is currently working on improving system implementation in the department. This includes reassessing agricultural policies, supportive programmes, marketing system, legislation and other matters that affect the progress of this new initiative.
