The agricultural sector in Fiji is seen in many quarters—including by the Reserve Bank of Fiji—as potentially a key driver of needed increases in export earnings and import substitution to reverse the continuing increase in the trade deficit. Despite the many pleas for better performance from the farming sector, it has performed poorly for a long period. Because Fiji is well endowed with agricultural land and rural workers, its agriculture sector should be a key part of the Fijian economy in terms of providing subsistence in rural areas and helping ensure food security for the society as a whole, as well as contributing to export earnings and foreign exchange.
