"Agriculture ensures food security and a growing agricultural sector boosts the national economy, reduces poverty and improves access to quality and safe food. Our new National Food Security Policy will improve diversification with an enhanced focus on high value horticulture and livestock".  

Sahibzada Muhammad Mehboob Sultan
Federal Minister of National Food Security and Research
"The diversification of the farmers’ income and the development of assets through high-value livestock and fruit tree crops are central to the Japan International Cooperation Agency’s Agriculture Programme. We believe UNIDO and its partner agencies in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan will be able to develop and strengthen the capacity of producers and processors engaged in the cattle meat and apple value chains".

Shigeki Furuta
Chief Representative of JICA
"Pakistan’s agricultural sector is one of Japan’s priority areas. The project will reduce food losses, improve supply chain management and will add more value to products, which will lead to more income generation and which, in turn, will contribute to the socio-economic stability of the targeted provinces".
