CONTRIBUTING about $400million annually, which is equal to 9.5 per cent of GDP into the Fijian economy, agriculture is the country's third-largest growing sector.
Speaking at the recent Export Awareness Seminar in Labasa, Investment Fiji chief executive officer Ravuni Uluilakeba said the main agricultural commodities were sugar, root crops, tropical fruits and vegetables.
Mr Uluilakeba said government's key focus was on developing the dairy industry.
"Government is also looking into investment opportunities within the aqua-culture, offshore fishery, and inshore fishery including commercial fishing ventures," he said.
"With regards to forestry, government is aware of the availability of our local resources. We are looking at value-adding timber products and developing the niche market."
Mr Uluilakeba said there were also investment opportunities in the manufacture of outdoor wood furniture for the tourism industry.
"Other investment opportunities include the down streaming of timber products for export since Fiji has large stocks of sustainable plantation of mahogany and pine.
"The way forward for Fiji now is to sustain its 25 per cent investment targets, including the continuation of government-enabling incentives and support within budgetary constraints.
"Reforms must continue on with the sugar industry."
Mr Uluilakeba said that sustainability needed to be reviewed on whether it was becoming an issue in the timber industry.
"However we have been getting positive figures and commitment by private sectors in the manufacturing industry."
