Its overall objective is to foster collaboration among stakeholders within the Agriculture Sector and to further develop an Action Plan enabling the Quality Infrastructure Institutions to provide effective support to the Agriculture Sector.
This national dialogue is an initiative within the National Quality Infrastructure (NQI) which will serve to strengthen and to increase cooperation among the various Quality Institutions and the private sector, as well as to promote the importance of standards and quality.
