Creating better jobs

Agriculture is the core of the economy and the primary source of employment, engaging 73% of the country’s labor force primarily in the rural areas. But, other forms of employment are growing faster especially in the urban areas where jobs are more diversified. Exploiting agribusiness opportunities and improving farmers’ access to markets, credit and lower cost inputs, better land policies such as expedited issuance of titles, extension of research and advisory services will increase productivity and create better quality rural jobs.
