The presentation considers the reasons for job-losses in the agriculture industry and looks at the increase in foodstuff imports and the subsequent decrease in foodstuff exports in South Africa. It also looks at government policies, the local marketplace and the South African agriculture sector as inhibitors to job creation. Finally, recommendations are made to governments, the private sector and agriculture sector in an effort to not only curb job-losses, but to create jobs.
