Agriculture holds the key to ensure domestic food security which is in turn inextricably linked to social and national security: Dr. Muhammad Azeem Khan
Islamabad (20th October 2020): Technical Advisory Committee of the Board of Directors of Agricultural Linkages Program (ALP) of Pakistan Agricultural Research Council (PARC), Tuesday recommended 24 projects submitted from all over the country. Chairman of PARC presided over the 46th meeting of the board of ALP to evaluate project proposal for funding, a press release said.
While presiding over the meeting Chairman, Dr. Muhammad Azeem Khan welcomed the committee members and said ensuring sustainable food supply for this huge population is certainly a daunting task and calls for placing maximum emphasis on agricultural productivity enhancement. Increased growth volatility in agriculture is certainly not a good sign for long-term food security of Pakistan’s burgeoning population hence must be addressed by increasing fund and reinforcing research and innovation. Agriculture holds the key to ensure domestic food security which is in turn inextricably linked to social and national security.
At the end of the meeting after recitation of Holy Quran, condolence was offered by TAC on sad demise of death of Dr. Haleemul Hasnain, Ex-Member TAC.
