Role of FPCCI in Agricultural Industry

Agriculture desk has been set for the formation of policies by The Regional Standing Committee of the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI). This has been confirmed for the tabled policies’ submission to the federal government so that they are able to enhance income and productivity.

This amazing step would readily increase the global competitiveness of Pakistan’s agriculture sector. Last year, FPCCI Standing Committee on Horticulture and Agriculture Produce had sent a detailed proposal for the formation of agriculture desk to the Federation President. Unfortunately, there are no concrete measures, which have been taken so far.

Pakistan’s economy has the huge dependence on the agricultural sector. Thus, this sector needs ample amount of investment in infrastructure for the enhancement in its efficiency through the reduction of both transaction costs and the prevalent market risks. A very large amount of primary produce is lost before it reaches the market due to inefficient handling, sorting, cleaning, grading and packaging facilities at small villages.

The agricultural desk would accommodate international cooperation to bring new technology into the cultivation and collaboration of opportunities, benefitting stakeholders in the agri-value chain. Agricultural activities suffer a lot due to major roadblocks. This has also resulted in the hindrance of its growth during the previous years. With effective policies, it can also be expected that farmers and their problems regarding agriculture can also be solved to a great extent. New technology can also be introduced into the farming sector after such policies.
