Pakistan’s prime minister announced to revamp the agricultural policy saying that “We have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with China to bring Chinese technology to Pakistan to benefit local farmers. China’s (per acre) production in the agriculture sector is three-times higher than that of Pakistan.”
