The agrotourism initiative, the improvement of mechanisation and automation skills and the cooperation of stakeholders in the agricommodity sector need to be intensified to ensure the sustainability of the sector in the face of uncertainties in the global market next year, said Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof.

Considering the agricommodity sector as the main pillar of the country's economy, the Plantation and Commodities Minister said after officiating National Agricultural Commodity Day 2023 on Tuesday (Dec 5) that the role of the Ministry of Plantation and Commodities is not only as a 'regulator' and 'facilitator', but has the main goal of ensuring the increase in productivity or yield in the agricommodity industry, while also contributing to their source of income.
