A Hot Tip about Agriculture and Animal Husbandry in Pakistan

Posted on: 7 Sep 2010

Agriculture plays a vital role in the economy of Pakistan. It remains the single largest sector of Pakistan’s economy contributing 20% of the total Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The agriculture sector provides employment to 44% of the country’s labour force and 50% of labour employed are women. Due to the current food crisis, the importance of agriculture has been revived. In Pakistan, both local and foreign investors are beginning to take an interest in this sector that was neglected earlier on. The increased investment and business interest means that lots of opportunities will arise in the coming months and years for British companies to market their products and expertise. Pakistan’s agriculture sector needs modernisation and is a good market for British companies providing modern machinery, technology and equipment, consultancy services, research, knowledge and skills development.
