National Assembly Special Committee on Agricultural Products

Pakistan committee asks government to remove agri export hurdles

It was recently revealed that higher cost of production, low level of farms productivity, lack of research in seed development and infrastructural bottlenecks precludes Pakistan’s quest for enhanced agricultural export value and competitiveness. That is why the National Assembly Special Committee on Agricultural Products has urged Pakistan’s national government to holistically address the structural, operational and policy issues to accelerate the nation’s agricultural exports.

Its members stressed that that without meaningful intervention, modernization and structural transformation of the agriculture sector, food inflation would impede Pakistan’s economic growth. The sub-committee - led by Shandana Gulzar Khan - was tasked to focus on the problems of the agricultural exporters and make recommendations to eliminate the hindrances to enhancing the country’s export value. 

The Patron in Chief of All Pakistan Fruits and Vegetables Exporters, Importers and Merchants Association warned that without substantial intervention to support the agriculture sector, Pakistan was heading to inflation enabled food security crisis. Apart from this, exporters promised drastic improvements in enhancing Pakistan’s agricultural export if their problems were resolved.
