According to the Foreign Investment Agency under the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI), in 2008, the agro-forestry-fisheries sector attracted 45 new projects with a combined investment of over 252 million USD; accounting for 3.8 percent of all projects and 0.42 percent of newly registered investment. The respective percentages for the first eight months of the year were 2.57 percent and 0.46 percent.
