5.8 Marketing and national policy objectives

  • An effective marketing system can contribute to national policy objectives.
  • . This section relates the features of marketing to the five main broad groups of policy objectives as identified in module 2.
  • . Although in general increased trade could be seen as acting contrary to this objective, an effective domestic marketing system reinforces independence by enabling a nation to supply its own needs more easily.
  • . For example, improvements in the West African livestock marketing system could enable regional supply of high-quality beef which in some cases is now imported.
  • . Regional marketing systems which replace supplies from world market sources work towards regional independence.
  • . The self-sufficiency ratio, discussed in module 2, reflects the performance of the production and marketing systems combined.
  • . If the marketing system is defined broadly to include the external trade factors, then changes in the NPC (module 4) are a measure of changes in the incentives given by the marketing system to domestic producers in comparison with imports.

    Proceedings of the mini roundtable meeting on agricultural marketing and food security
  • The objective of the Mini Roundtable Meeting was to establish priorities for FAO’s programme of work in agricultural marketing for the next few years in Asia and the Pacific.
  • . First, up until now government intervention in regional agricultural markets has been pervasive.
  • . As most of the countries in the region are increasingly liberalizing their international trade regimes, it will be important to simultaneously reduce government intervention in domestic markets.
  • . Fourth, the marketing infrastructure in several countries continues to be far from adequate.
  • . And fifth, because the training, research and extension education infrastructure for agricultural marketing is generally inadequate in most of the countries of the region, insufficient attention is being given to human resource development in agricultural marketing.
  • . In the emerging economic environment there is a need to increase the agricultural marketing and agribusiness management components so that graduates from these universities and institutes are equipped to take up agribusiness activities, especially as the demand for skills in these areas is expected to rise at a very rapid rate.
