USAID launches workshops for Pakistan agricultural exports

ISLAMABAD: The US government launched a series of workshops across Pakistan on Monday to help increase Pakistan’s agricultural exports.

These workshops will bring together Pakistani government representatives, private business, and farmers to discuss international standards for agricultural exports and identify ways for improved manufacturing, processing, and packaging of agricultural goods for international markets. These two-day workshops will take place in Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi, and Quetta.

“Pakistan’s share in the world’s agricultural and food exports depends on its ability to increase agricultural productivity, to identify strategic market opportunities, and to compete with other suppliers,” said Dr Andrew Sisson Director, Director of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission in Pakistan. “The US Government is committed to working with the people and government of Pakistan to unleash Pakistan’s potential for agricultural export growth.”
