Pakistan looks for Belarusian technologies to get better milk processing and dairy production as to initiate agriculture technology projects.

The fundamental rationale of Pakistan and Belarus was to promote mutual cooperation in the field of agro technology and research in areas identified mutually by the governments, scientific cooperation and research, exchange of agro machinery and research in the field of cattle farming.
The areas were dubbed as vital for the uplift of farmers and agriculture. They include cattle breeding through advanced technological assistance and cooperation in genetic engineering, research in dairy production and processing, improvement of productive qualities of beef cattle and veterinary vaccine development.
A substantial development for the mutual venture has been made and sound proposals for cooperation in the areas of animal science, farm machinery and biotechnology along with pertinent focal persons and institutions from both the sides have been finalized.
