Agriculture - Introduction


IBSA Joint Working Group (JWG) on Agriculture was formed to build on the existing capabilities of IBSA countries in the agriculture sector and tap their synergies in the wake of shared concerns relating to trade and food safety aspects in this sector. It seeks to examine the status, past trends and the factors underlying growth of agriculture to identify possible future opportunities and innovations in IBSA countries.
