The agriculture sector in Palestine accounts for 8% and 16% of the Palestinian GDP and employment, respectively. It is estimated that the average Palestinian family spends 42% of its income on food, which demonstrates the significant potential of the local market to absorb the sector’s output.
In terms of export potential, the Palestinian agricultural and agro-business sector has significant potential, especially considering Palestine’s year-round crop production capacity in the Jordan Valley, due to its unique and favorable climate. Moreover, there are attractive opportunities in the agribusiness space in Palestine, including crop processing, transportation and storage, and marketing.
