20 January 2017 The Dutch agri & food sector has further strengthened its leading position in the world market. In 2016, Agri & Food exports totalled almost 94 billion euros, compared to 90 billion in 2015. Agricultural products accounted for 85 billion euros and agricultural materials, knowledge and technology accounted for 9 billion: a new record. This means the agri & food sector now comprises 22% of total exports. This is shown by provisional figures from Statistics Netherlands (CBS) and Wageningen Economic Research. Minister for Agriculture Martijn van Dam announced these figures during the opening of International Green Week in Berlin, the largest international agricultural trade exhibition in the world.

13 December 2016 The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) is making a friendly call to all international travellers who will be visiting South Africa during the festive season, or returning to South Africa after the holidays, to comply with the country’s import requirements for agricultural and related regulated products. Compliance will assist our country in preventing and/or minimising the potential risk of introducing alien invasive species, foreign pests and diseases that could be associated with imported plants, plant products, animals, animal products and other regulated goods.
