    • Agriculture
      • Dominated by CAP
      • Specialisation in a narrow range of commodities
      • Small margins
    • Food
      • Minimal processing
      • Mainly for the export market, undifferentiated
      • 80% of food consumed locally is imported
    • Rural Development
      • 35% of rural residents dependent on agriculture
      • 75% of family farms are part-time with over 50% income from off-farm
      • Rural communities generally weak despite LEADER
      • Low level of participation in community development
  • 5. Drivers of Change
    • Agriculture
      • Continuing decline in EU subvention and direct payments
      • WTO agreements  price reduction
      • Large corporate retailers  reduced price
      • Alternative farm output opportunities
    • Food
      • Choice between quality/domestic and price/imports
      • Oil prices and environment concerns will dampen imports
      • Corporate retailers will drive the large scale production model
      • Search for food quality will drive a consumer led food cluster
    • Rural Development
      • Limited public funds
      • Rural development driven by community led initiatives
  • 6. 2040 Vision
    • Agriculture/Food
      • Large scale farms producing efficiently and environmentally friendly
      • Greater control of the processing and direct selling to supermarkets
      • International niche market for an All-Ireland Irish Food Brand
      • Small-scale producers with primary and processed foods under Galway Food Brand
      • Selling directly to the consumers through “farmers’ markets’
      • Food cluster with Galway Food Brand
      • Cultural image of Galway extended to Galway food
    • Rural Development
      • Exploiting the rural resources for multiproduct output - food, tourism and energy
      • Local self help based on individual commitment to the community will be driving force in developing local identity and quality of life
      • Local value added derived from farm, processing, industry and services (including internationally traded)
