During the talks, the sides discussed prospects of scientific and technical cooperation in the agro-industrial complex between Belarus and Pakistan. Exchange of genetic resources of fruit and berry crops, methods for minimizing harvest loss, and technologies for advanced processing of meat and dairy products are among the proposed projects. Thus, the NASB Research Center for Mechanization of Agriculture is ready to consider launching supplies of demanded agricultural machinery to Pakistan and design a machinery system for innovative production of agricultural products taking into account soil and climatic conditions in Pakistan.
In his turn, First Deputy National Food Security and Research Minister Abid Javed noted that Pakistan was interested in agricultural cooperation and establishing joint ventures manufacturing meat and dairy products with the use of Belarusian technologies.
Members of the delegation visited research centers of the NASB Department of Agrarian Sciences and got acquainted with their activities. The visits will help develop more specific suggestions on further cooperation.
