The Sindh Governor House hosted a Biryani festival on Thursday night under the aegis of the Rice Exporters Association of Pakistan (REAP).
Governor Imran Ismail while speaking on the occasion appreciated the fact that similar Biryani festivals were also being organised under the aegis of the REAP in 14 countries and 22 cities of the world.
He said holding such festivals would help in boosting Pakistan’s economy as they helped to encourage the people associated with the rice sector of the country. The rice crop of our country was appreciated all over the world due to its quality, taste and fragrance, Ismail said, adding that the government had the utmost resolve to provide maximum facilities to the industrialists, growers and exporters related to the rice sector in order to increase exports of the agricultural product. He said the government would introduce reforms to increase rice production.
