About Ministry of Primary Industy
The Ministry of Primary Industries(MPI) was established in 1972 with the amalgamation of the Export Commodities Division of the Ministry ofInternational Trade and Industry and several Units from the Ministry of Agriculture and Land. The role of MPI was to establish an integrated approach to the development of primary commodities sector as it played an important role in the country's economy contributing some 70% of total export earnings in the 1970's. MPI which started off with two commodities under its responsibility i.e. the twin pillars of the economy, rubber and tin, has since then expanded its role to include the development of other commodities such as palm oil, cocoa, timber, other minerals, pineapple, pepper and tobacco in line with the agricultural diversification policy. With the implementation of the Industrial Master Plan(IMP), MPI promotes the development of higher value-added resource based industries i.e. processed and semi-processed products in order to maximise export earnings and socio-economic contributions to the country.
