Kingdom of Eswatini takes agriculture and animal husbandry as one of the main economic pillars. However, agricultural production activities are biased towards sugarcane monocrops, which have been affected by the decline in international sugar prices and the withdrawal of sugarcane trade preferences in the European Union, which has affected farmers' livelihoods. To diversify agricultural production and farmers' income, TaiwanICDF  introduced emerging crop technologies, mentored farmers in the country to cultivate market-oriented crops such as bananas, guava, pitaya, papaya, strawberries, etc., and strengthened the industrial chain development and sales system, successfully assisting 800 farmers to achieved the goal to increase income per-hectare of 39.48 percent in the past. In order to enhance the development scale of Eswatini designated fruit tree items and increase the proportion of overall fruit trees in the total output value of agricultural products, this project will continue to expand the production capacity of guava, pitaya and strawberry and strategically market fruits with domestic demand as the main and export as the supplement, and at the same time improve the post-harvest treatment technology of fruit products.
