Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Punjab is a major contributor to to Pakistan's economy and food security. Punjab contributes about 60% to the agriculture-based exports of the country. The province produces 75.5 percent of wheat, 70.2 percent of rice, 68.5 percent of cotton, 67.8 percent of sugarcane, 79.8 percent of maize, and 86.5 percent of gram in the country, and is a major contributor to the milk market. However, most of the agriculture produce in Punjab, as with the rest of Pakistan, travels through a complex marketing chain with poor regulation and enforcement of rules. There is a need to modernize agricultural marketing systems in Punjab to promote economic growth and job creation.
