Agricultural. Sector The development of the agricultural sector and food processing industry brings with it specific challenges, particularly higher costs and poor net value when compared to other systems within the European Union. The sector is characterised by livestock systems that are only partially modernised or environmentally friendly; achieve relatively low production levels; and skill levels among some businesses, thus having an impact on the efficiency and sustainability of operations. A poor quality domestic fodder production linked to high dependence on imported feeds and associated transport costs also pose challenges to the sustainability and competitiveness of the industry. In this regard, assistance to the farming community to adopt innovative approaches to become more sustainable and to enable investment to improve the rural investment and competitiveness of the industry is necessary. Furthermore, investment in management skills and innovation in product development is also required to enhance diversification and efficiency resulting in added value and increasing returns to the business and thus contributing towards the sustainability of the sector.
