The Federation of Unions of South Africa (Fedusa) says it remains gravely concerned about the agriculture industry, which has shown a sixth consecutive quarter of economic decline.
Yesterday it was announced that the economy grew by 3.3 percent in the second quarter of this year, avoiding a technical recession.
While there are still concerns about growth, the agriculture sector has continued to show a decline.
Fedusa’s Dennis George says, “The agriculture industry is exposed to climatic incidents, such as drought. We want to meet specifically with our agricultural sector to see what businesses, labour and government can do to provide support for the industry.”
