Description

In May 2001, the Pakistan Ministry for Food and Agriculture signed an agreement with China Guangdong International Cooperation for the construction and expansion of a quarantine lab of the Pakistan Department of Plant Protection in Karachi. The 1042 square meter quarantine lab is used to test and identify plants, crops and other agriculture related diseases before export. The project was planned to be completed in fifteen months, under an agreement signed in Islamabad between the Ministry of Food & Agriculture and the Chinese Company. The current status of this project is unknown. The project will be supported by a Rs 116.5 million interest-free loan from the Chinese government. On November 16 2001, Khair Mohammed Junejo reportedly laid the foundation stone of the Pakistan Plant Quarantine Expansion project in Malir, Jinnah Avenue.
