 F.P. Report
LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister, Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said that increase in

agriculture production and promotion of modern technology is the need of the hour and the

Punjab government is utilizing all resources for this purpose. He said that agriculture sector

plays vital role for the development of the country and government is paying full attention

for the development of this sector. He said that not only green tractors and agriculture

equipment are being provided to the farmers on subsidized rates but provision of quality

seed and agri loans have also been ensured to them. He directed to constitute a cabinet

committee for solving the problems of farmers, increase in production and promotion of

modern technology which will submit its comprehensive recommendations keeping in view

all aspects of the development of agriculture sector. He expressed these views while

inspecting the pump operating through solar energy and agriculture equipment of Farm All

Technology and later addressing a briefing meeting held with regard to improvement of

agriculture sector at Raiwind Road, here today. MNA Imran Nazir, Chairman Task Force

Haroon Khawaja, Nadim Babar, Senior Member Board of Revenue, Secretary Agriculture,

Chairman TEVTA, President Bank of Punjab, Managing Director Cholistan and other

concerned officers attended the meeting. Addressing the meeting, Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif

said that most of the population of the province depends upon agriculture and government is

implementing a comprehensive strategy for development of agriculture sector so that not

only self sufficiency could be achieved in agri products but proper return of the produce

could also be ensured to the farmers. He said that increase in agriculture produce is

impossible without promotion of modern technology and government is taking all possible

steps for streamlining agriculture sector on modern lines and introducing modern technology

for increasing production. He also directed constitution of a cabinet committee for

reviewing increase in agriculture production, improvement in agriculture sector and setting

up of a company "Paidawar" in this regard which will submit its recommendations for

setting up the said company. Earlier, agriculture expert, Asif Sharif gave a detailed briefing

with regard to improving the existing agriculture system and promotion of modern

technology. He said that production of agriculture can only be increased with the use of

modern technology. He said that use of traditional methods in agriculture sector, lack of

knowledge about agriculture and research and non-availability of resources in time to the

farmers are the major causes of decrease in agri production. He gave a proposal for setting

up of a company namely "Paidawar" which will streamline the agriculture sector on modern

lines throughout the province and also provide all information including technical assistance

to the farmers. He said that a vigorous media campaign would be launched in this regard. He

also informed about other matters regarding setting up of the said company. The participants

of the meeting also gave their suggestions with regard to establishment of this company.
