The US-Pakistan Partnership for Pakistan Agricultural Market Development (AMD) hosted a dinner in Islamabad on April 6, 2018, to showcase Pakistan’s halal meat, high-value, off-season vegetables, and citrus. The event was attended by over 100 participants representing the private sector, research institutes, academia, trade groups, and others.
