Pakistan Agribusiness Report Q4 2017

BMI View:

There are numerous challenges facing producers of all commodities in Pakistan, chief amongthem the improving, yet still fragile, security situation, erratic power supply, lack of availability of financeand vulnerability to extreme weather events. Nevertheless, the government has taken some positiveinterventionist steps to improve the availability of higher-quality seeds for rice, wheat and corn, whichshould raise yields over the medium term. It has also taken steps to ease tariffs and taxes on key inputs.

Recent positive developments in the country's energy sector, if sustained, could be beneficial for cotton andrice producers in particular. Our expectation of rising prices for rice, grains and cotton out to the end ofour forecast period in 2021 also provides some grounds for optimism regarding exports. More positivitycomes from favourable weather conditions for growth which have helped us upgrade our forecast forproduction and consumption across the crops we cover in this update.
