Agriculture remains central to the world economy, and according to FAO, more than 60 per cent of the world’s population depends on agriculture for survival. Globally, there is also an expanding market for agriculture based products. Sarawak thus aims to contribute to that market by leveraging on modern technology to rapidly transform its agricultural sector.

The growth of the agricultural sector can be enhanced with the adoption of modern and digital technology to capacity build the farming community to improve productivity, quality, sufficiency and competitiveness. Digital economy is projected to make up 17.4% of the State’s GDP by 2025. Today’s agro entrepreneurs, notably the younger generation of agriculture industry players must be nurtured and equipped with advanced farming, processing and marketing of their produce to achieve a holistic and integrated supply and value chain leveraging on private sector participation that possess market and information access, capital and technology.

The Sarawak AgroFest 2018 is a premier agricultural festival in Sarawak that combines exhibition and sales; conferences and seminars, business matching, food sales, mini zoo, games, competition and performances. Sarawak AgroFest is rebranded from Hari Peladang, Penternak dan Nelayan (HPPN) and aims to actively promote agriculture and agro-based industry in the State. The key component of the nine-day festival is the second edition of the International Conference on Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Sarawak (ICAAS). The main objectives of ICAAS 2018 is to provide a platform to showcase how digital technology can transform the State agriculture sector as well as to share best practices and successful business models in public-private sector partnership, farmers’ organisation and agro entrepreneurs in commercialising the agriculture sector. Sarawak AgroFest 2018 will also be exhibiting the diversity of the State’s agricultural produce and agro-based products. It will also be fun-filled to include a mini zoo, hackathon, agro competitions and performances, catering for the young and old, students and practitioners in the industry.
