Quarantine restrictions are major obstacles to agricultural exports from the Pacific island countries to developed country markets. The paper points to the best developed country market prospects for Pacific agricultural exports if the quarantine barriers can be overcome. It also discusses the most important plant quarantine issues and what needs to be done to overcome these problems so that the export markets can be developed. A recommendation is made for a Pacific-wide, scientific and technical assistance effort to promote agricultural exports from the region and allow the region to participate in the rapid global growth in trade in high-value agricultural commodities.
