Agro-businesses ( mainly small and medium enterprises) are dealing with inadequate accessibility to market information, especially market analysis and forecast information. This is a major difficulty that small and medium enterprises in rural and agriculture sector are facing when the economy is increasingly integrated regionally and worldwide.

Although information on agricultural and rural policy is presently publicized widely on mass media or under different forms at both central and local levels. The information focuses mainly on dissemination of new policies, introduction of policy beneficiaries, timeframe and location for implementation in a top-down approach. Feedback on policy implementation are mainly from some organizations or individuals instead of the wide range of policy beneficiaries .
