Disappointing Agriculture despite Economic Growth
Saturday, June-10-2017





The state of agriculture in Pakistan remains a disappointment despite some improvements in the overall economic scenario as the country’s most important sector grows at a lower average rate due to random shock and structural weaknesses, says a report prepared by economist Dr Shahid Javed Burki.


The report, launched by the Shahid Javed Burki Institute of Public Policy, pointed to decades-old farming practices coupled with other core issues and said agriculture growth had clearly slowed down in the past one decade when output growth averaged only 2% per annum between 2006-16 and was -0.2% in 2015-16.
