The objective of the workshop is to follow up on the First National Stakeholder Workshop convened in August 2014 by developing recommendations and a national action plan aimed at enhancing value added and export capacity for copra, cocoa and sandalwood products. To support workshop discussions, three national experts have prepared a national report analyzing these three products/sectors, and proposing recommendations and an action plan for consideration by stakeholders.

In this regard, the workshop will serve as a platform to discuss potential ways to increase production and exports of these products and enhance local value added, alongside required actions, policies, institutional support and financing.

By the end of the workshop, stakeholders will adopt consensus recommendations and an agreed action plan to improve national productive capacities; strengthen policy, regulatory and institutional frameworks; and build a marketing strategy for export of these products.
