THE MEAT COUNCIL MAKES A LECTURE AT AGRICULTURE CONFERENCE

The Meat Board of Namibia delivered a presentation at the first virtual Agricultural Conference in Namibia on 2 & 3 September 2020. The presentation dealt with the environment, challenges and opportunities for the meat industry to increase its contribution to the Gross Domestic Product. The economic contribution of agriculture to the national Gross Domestic Product has declined in recent years for various reasons, but mainly due to sustained droughts and lack of confidence in the sector. Proposals to increase the contribution of the meat industry to the agriculture Gross Domestic Product include the restoration of confidence in the sector by the government, a functional government service, prevention of mismanagement of scarce financial resources; and with specific focus on the utilization of the cattle population north of the Veterinary Cordon Fence, support for charcoal production, as well as the commercialization of the Green Schemes. Strategies not to be followed include any restrictions on market access for both livestock and meat, and any construction of additional abattoirs or processing plants north of the veterinary cordon fence. The fastest way to increase the contribution of the meat industry to agriculture Gross Domestic Product is to increase the sales value of the industry's respective products with highly efficient export value chains and institutions.
