AgriSETA partners to support training for the agricultural sector

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the economy with most sectors experiencing significant contraction in 2020. However, agriculture bucked the trend and exhibited respectable growth despite the pandemic’s effect on exports and labour. This bodes well for the sector, which has linkages to the entire economy and, according to the National Development Plan Vision 2030, has the potential to create close to one million new jobs by 2030. Indeed, farming is a key occupation, with an estimated 8,5 million people directly or indirectly dependent on agriculture for their employment and income.
