Agriculture Market Information System

An Agriculture Market Information System (AMIS) has been established in the Cook Islands. The AMIS is the first of its kind in the region and will be used to capture vital information for effective agricultural policy development. The work was led by the Department of Policy, Planning & Projects (DPPP) and the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) in partnership with the European Union-funded Pacific Agricultural Policy Program (PAPP) implemented by the Secretariat of Pacific Community (SPC).

  • The purpose of the database is to collect specific market and production results

  • Information from the AMIS will be readily available to planners and project developers across government agencies.

  • What excites the MoA the most is the ability of the AMIS to identify key imported crops which have the potential to be subsisted by domestic producers at specific times of year.
