STAFF REPORT LHR: The expected participation of at least 50 foreign companies in the upcoming China Agro Chemical (CAC) Summit shows their interest in the agricultural potential of Pakistan, said Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) President Sheikh Muhammad Arshad.
The summit, scheduled to be held on May 9 and 10 in Lahore, is expected to be attended by representatives of Indian, Chinese, Iranian and Egyptian companies.
“This would add another chapter of success to the history of international exhibitions in Pakistan as around 43 Chinese companies are participating in this exhibition to showcase state-of-the-art technologies and solutions to improve productivity of agro-based commodities and keep crops free of hazards,” said Arshad at a press conference.
Apart from the foreign firms, leading groups and companies of Pakistan associated with different sub-sectors of agriculture have agreed on taking part in the summit.
The participating companies will display their range of products on around 60 stalls for the visiting importers, distributors and farmers from Pakistan and neighbouring countries. “Pakistan is an agrarian economy but we lag far behind in terms of adopting the desired level of knowledge and ways to combat potential threats to our food and cash crops,” Arshad said.
