Agriculture a preferred sector

Current market conditions instil confidence for investment in agriculture, and financial institutions consider agriculture as one of their preferred sectors.

This view is shared by Agri SA and Agbiz, which had facilitated a meeting with representatives of the agriculture divisions of the four major commercial banks to discuss matters relating to agricultural financing. During the discussions, the macro-economic conditions under which agriculture functions were considered, as well as the relatively favourable production and market conditions of the past five years which were supportive of profitability and asset growth within the sector.
