PESHAWAR: President Pakistan Economy Watch, Dr Murtaza Mughal has said agriculture was a backbone of the economy and without its development, the dreams of economic prosperity would hardly be materialized.
He said the desired targets of economic growth can easily be achieved by promoting agriculture sectors for which more facilities should be given to farmers and growers, said a press release.
Dr Mughal said Pakistan was an agriculture country and known for high milk production in the world.
He suggested that solid efforts were required to address problems of the people associated with milk industry and livestock owners for increasing production of milk and meat to cater people’s demands.
He was of the opinion that the development of agriculture and livestock was vital for food security and meat production, which will only be achieved by giving incentives to people associated with livestock and agriculture sectors.
