Agriculture has been of immense importance and will always remain the backbone of Papua New Guinea sustenance with over 85 percent of the population involved in subsistence farming. The moderate tropical climate with high levels of seasonal rainfall is highly favourable for agricultural activities.
The driving force behind commercial agriculture in Papua New Guinea has always been the export crops namely coffee, cocoa, coconut (copra), oil palm and kernels.
There’s been a significant increase in the cash crop business giving rise to the sector’s export portfolio.
Specific investment opportunities dwell in coffee, oil palm, cocoa, copra, whilst other minor export commodities include spices, tea and rubber.
