The Punjab state government recently proposed several development projects in the agriculture sector to be included in the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Socio Economic Development Framework. Under the framework, a joint cotton research laboratory would be established in Multan at a cost of Rs 186 million to boost cotton productivity.

The centre will also help in development of climate-resilient cotton varieties, according to Pakistani media reports.

Under the Socio-Economic Development Framework, China had agreed to provide Pakistan a grant of $1 billion for initiating various projects across the country especially in under developed areas. (DS)
