Dedicated Economic Centers (DECs)

The setting up of Dedicated Economic Centers was started in 1998, as means of implementing marketing development strategy to provide marketing facilities for producers in the rural areas.

The subject of establishing DECs which was carried out by the Ministry of Rural Employment Promotion was assigned to the Ministry of Trade, Marketing Development, Co-operatives and Consumer Services in 2007. Accordingly, coordination and supervision of operation of all DECs are done by this Ministry.

The objectives of setting up economic centers are to:

  • Ensure obtaining reasonable prices for agriculture producers for their crops by providing targeted market.
  • Provide opportunity to small scale producers to minimize their transport costs and wastage in transportation.
  • Provide opportunities for wholesale traders to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables, directly from producers.
  • Encourage business community by providing competitive marketing environment for wholesale traders.
  • Create opportunity to distribute area specific agricultural products among people in all parts of the island.
  • Provide facilities for consumers to purchase food items at cheaper prices.
