Agriculture and Livestock

Myanmar is traditionally an agricultural country and agriculture sector remains as a major contributor to GDP, and its share of export earnings is about 40%.

At the same time, agriculture sector provides employment to more than 60 per cent of work force. In addition, food security for the people and raw material production for domestic agro-based industries are heavily dependent on the agricultural sector.

For future prospect, Myanmar set up the millennium development goals targeting 2015 and significant progress has been achieved in various sectors including agriculture. Major issues on the future development of agriculture sector are regional food security, extension of agricultural land, enhancing participation of private entrepreneurs in agricultural activities, income generation activities through introducing new crops, and encouraging farmers to cultivate environmental friendly crops.
