The South African Government aims to strengthen bilateral cooperation with India as a measure to enlarge both stakeholder’s agricultural markets.
Two countries have made that commitment during a high meeting between their ministers held in New Delhi, India last week.
The main focus of the cooperation appears to be crop and animal production (include crop breeding), research, food and nutrition security, agroforestry, aquaculture and agro-processing.
According to the speeches, SA and India will both seek a opportunity to jointly explore the bamboo trade. It is also said silk production is one of the main goal for both sides.
Not so long ago, in 2016, SA got an access to persimmons and mangoes market. For today, the Republic also prioritizes joining of avocados, litchis and pickled sheep and goat skins markets, saying a work on them is on advanced stage.
