Government of Jamaica

Technical Services

The Technical Services Directorate is responsible for directing and coordinating the activities of the technical divisions within the Ministry.

Our mission is to lead the dynamic transformation and modernization of the Agricultural Sector by being the authoritative source of policy advice. The Directorate makes recommendations for the adoption of policies, strategies, goals and plans that promote market-driven and priority-based research and development programmes, which will increase competitiveness and sustainable output in the Sector. Agricultural health and food safety, trade facilitation, as well as conservation of biodiversity are central to the Directorate's activities that seek to enhance the transformation process.

The Ministry

Welcome to the official website of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries.

The Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries (MICAF) has been charged with the responsibility of driving the integration of the production of primary agricultural produce along all the stages of the supply chain through to value added and facilitating full commercialization of outputs of the agriculture, manufacturing, and service sectors.

We have, therefore, placed much energy and enthusiasm into the development of this website to provide timely information on the Ministry, our agencies and programmes.
