    Farmland in Pakistan – a new food colony for the Middle East

    Keeping this massive exports bill, that reaches to a total of roughly &5 billion dollars annually, Pakistan would be loosing a lot more than just this $5 billions. Though the government is adamant that they are not selling or doing away these lands but locals tell a completely different story. The other statements of raising the productivity also fall short of reality because the government has failed completely to help the farmers to export their products due to lack of facilities. A raised productivity level would not mean anything if there aren’t sufficient resources available to ship the products abroad.
