OVERVIEW

    for 2010/11 financial year
  • This presentation focuses attention on the
    departmental achievements made during 2010/11
    period,
  • The amalgamation process to incorporate forestry
    and fisheries functions within the agriculture
    setup has been completed.
  • Of the 12 key Outcomes identified for
    implementation over the coming four years, DAFF
    directly contributes to Outcomes 4, 7 and 10.
  • The operating environment was also influence

    and Comprehensive Rural Development Plan.
  • The Integrated Growth and Development Plan for
    the AFF sectors guiding sectoral response to the
    abovementioned policies in addressing national
    challenges.

6
SECTOR ECONOMIC HIGHLIGHTS
  • The Strategic Plan 2010 -11 was implemented in
    the following domestic and global economic
    environment
  • Global financial and economic uncertainty and the
    debt crisis in Europe continue to keep global
    markets jittery with the talk of another global
    recession gaining momentum.
  • The prevailing global economic situation has
    impacted negatively on exports especially to
    countries that are our biggest importers in
    Europe.
  • During the past year (especially since August
    2010) agricultural commodity markets experienced
    significant volatility as the balance between
    demand and supply tightened and adverse weather
    conditions occurred.

7
SECTOR ECONOMIC HIGHLIGHTS.
  • Gross farming income from all agricultural
    products for 2010/11 is estimated at R131,7
    billion, which is 0,4 lower than for the
    previous corresponding period.
  • Gross farming income from field crops decreased
    by 12,0 and amounted to R27,6 billion.
  • The income from horticultural products rose by
    0,6, from R35,3 billion to R35,5 billion. Income
    from animal products amounted to R68,6 billion,
    which showed an increase of 4,7.
  • Prices received by farmers for agricultural
    products and prices paid by farmers for farming
    requisites increased on average by 4,3 and 13,2
    , respectively, resulting in the terms of trade
    weakening from 0,93 to 0,86 during 2010/2011.

8
SECTOR ECONOMIC HIGHLIGHTS
  • Apart from the floods experienced during the last
    quarter of the year under review, stronger
    linkages between agricultural commodities and
    energy markets through inputs such as fuel and
    fertiliser, and through the demand for feedstock
    in the bio-fuels industry
  • have impacted negatively on inputs and food
    prices.
  • The total catches and the free on board value of
    the production output of the fishing industry
    from 2010 is approximately 650 000 tons and R6,5
    billion.
  • Over the next decade the demand for food is
    expected to grow consistently in line with
    population growth, whilst in real terms, world
    commodity prices are likely to remain fairly
    stagnant albeit at a higher plateau compared to
    the previous period from 2000 to 2010.

9
SECTOR ECONOMIC HIGHLIGHTS
  • The FAO food price index reached a record high in
    February 2011, mainly due to increased prices of
    cereals, meat and dairy products globally.
  • In Western and Central Africa the prices of
    domestically produced staple foods have been
    relatively stable. As for Eastern and Southern
    Africa, prices of locally produced coarse grains
    have increased. For example, Somalia has been
    hard-hit with sorghum and maize prices soaring
    over 200 between October 2010 and April 2011.
  • The situation is even worse In North Africa,
    which is traditionally dependent on cereal
    imports as production has declined as a result of
    drought and erratic rains as well as civil
    strife.
  • Consequently, rising international grain prices
    will remain a major concern for food security in
    many African countries.

10
SECTOR ECONOMIC HIGHLIGHTS ..
  • The forestry industry is showing steady
    recovery since the 2008 recession and the
    resulting decline in pulp and paper demand. This
    is driven mostly by packaging and tissue grades.
    With the exception of fluting and kraft papers,
    tonnages across all grades have recovered from
    their 2008/09 lows.
  • The Rand value of production is significantly
    higher due to higher global prices, which appear
    to be driven by the global trend of rising
    resource prices, labour, energy and water costs
    in the forestry industry.
  • The imports of paper and packaging grades (except
    for tissue products) continue to rise strongly
    showing a 28 increase since 2006 outstripping
    domestic production which has declined by about
    4.
  • This is partly attributable to the relatively
    strong Rand of recent years. The lack of any
    trade tariffs also make South Africa an easy
    target for dumping, which even when not in great
    quantities, disrupts local markets.

11
ECONOMIC SECTOR Conti
  • South Africa is a net exporter of fish and fish
    products. In some cases, like Rock Lobster,
    Squid, Tuna and Demersal Longline, almost the
    entire production is exported,
  • The country is also exporting about 52 of the
    total demersal trawl catches (economically the
    largest fishery). The products are mainly
    destined for Europe, Japan and the USA.
  • The fisheries industry employment is about 27000
    direct jobs as well as additional 81000 jobs in
    the sectors that are at least partly dependent in
    the fishing industry.
  • Increasing job losses (an average decrease of 5
    per quarter in employment) leaving agriculture
    with a total of 598 000 jobs, remains a
    challenge.
  • By improving the competitiveness of the
    commercial sector, labour absorptive capability
    and supporting smallholders to become
    commercially viable, the country positively
    overcoming the challenges of a concentrating
    sector and an increasingly competitive global
    market.
  • The above achievements will be further enhanced
    through the implementation of the Provincial Job
    Creation Projects, the Smallholder plan, and the
    Zero Hunger Programme.
