IS­LAM­ABAD: Min­is­ter for Food Se­cu­rity Sikan­dar Hayat Bosan says the gov­ern­ment is striv­ing to make agri­cul­tural sec­tor more com­pet­i­tive and prof­itable for food se­cu­rity.

He was ad­dress­ing the inau­gu­ral ses­sion of two-day con­fer­ence on Agri­cul­tural In­no­va­tions for Im­proved Pro­duc­tiv­ity and Eco­nomic Growth", in Is­lam­abad on Mon­day. The Min­is­ter un­der­lined the need for more in­vest­ment in agri­cul­ture re­search and de­vel­op­ment to en­hance agri­cul­ture yield.

He said the ap­pli­ca­tion of emerg­ing global tech­nolo­gies is im­per­a­tive to pro­mote the farm­ing sec­tor of the coun­try and stressed for co­or­di­nated ef­forts be­tween Public and Pri­vate Sec­tor with the sup­port of farm­ing com­mu­nity in this re­gard. Mis­sion Di­rec­tor USAID Pak­istan, John Groarke said the United States and Pak­istan have been in col­lab­o­ra­tion for the de­vel­op­ment of agri­cul­ture sec­tor over the past 50 years.
