The plan will also focus on improving production and productivity, enhancing value addition, promoting market access, strengthening institutional and policy frameworks, enhancing human na institutional capacity, promoting research development, and addressing climate change and environmental sustainability.

Minister Agisa said “In recognition to the importance of the agriculture sector, the current Marape-Rosso government has made agriculture a top Deliberate Intervention Program, in the Medium Term Development Plan 4 (2023-2027).”

He added that the NASP will also play a crucial role in contributing to the government’s goal of growing the PNG economy to K200 billion by 2030, as outlined in the MTDP4.
