Aus­tralian agro in­dus­try to help re­ha­bil­i­tate food pro­duc­tion

The Pak Banker - - National -

LA­HORE: On the Pun­jab Board of In­vest­ment & Trade (PBIT)'s flood re­lief and rehabilitation ef­forts, Aus­tralia's agri­cul­tural in­dus­try is be­ing called upon to as­sist the re­build­ing of food pro­duc­tion in flood­af­fected Pak­istan.

The ini­tia­tive comes on the back of the wors­en­ing cri­sis and a re­cent trade mis­sion visit to Aus­tralia by lead­ing Pak­istan agri­cul­tural or­gan­i­sa­tions look­ing to es­tab­lish trade re­la­tions and im­ple­ment new food pro­duc­tion tech­nolo­gies. The leader of the re­cent trade del­e­ga­tion from Pak­istan and Di­rec­tor Gen­eral, Pun­jab Board of In­vest­ment & Trade, Moaz­zam Hu­sain while giv­ing de­tails in this re­gard in­formed that the call to ac­tion comes from Richard Price, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Kon­dinin Group, Aus­tralia's na­tional farm im­prove­ment group who has urged the govern­ment and agri­cul­tural in­dus­tries to work to­gether re­build­ing Pak­istan's pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity. Moaz­zam Hus­sain fur­ther told that famers are hugely de­pen­dent on live­stock and food grain cul­ti­va­tion, both of these dev­as­tated by the flood­wa­ter and any re­sponse such as pro­vi­sion of live an­i­mals, em­bryos or se­men as well as food grains and canola seeds would be hugely ben­e­fi­cial. -App
