Rural affairs

The land and water-based or green industries are important primary industries. They account for a significant share of land use in rural areas and have a unique role in the management of the landscape’s natural and cultural values. This provides conditions for conducting other forms of business activities in rural areas, such as activities related to experiences and recreation. The policy area also includes issues relating to livestock, fisheries, hunting and game management, agriculture, forestry and food.
