Punjab can serve as world food basket: Gardezi

24

Provincial Minister for Agriculture Syed Hussain Jahania Gardezi said on Sunday that Punjab could serve as ‘world food basket’ provided required investment was injected in different sections of the agriculture sector.

He was addressing the Pakistan Economic Conference (PEC) on “agriculture: value addition, technology, export opportunity and its potential in Pakistan”.

He said the conference would have salutary impact on national economy as the business community of Faisalabad was now planning to switch over from textile to other segments like agriculture and IT, etc. He said that diversification was imperative to survive in the fast changing global environment. —APP
