Sugarcane export

I personally believe that we have been extremely negligent on the sugar cane front. It is one of the most lucrative crops that we can find in our part of the world but in my humble opinion its utility has not been proper. And it’s not just about the sugarcanes we have been ignoring the agriculture sector for a long time.
Agriculture has been our backbone throughout history and unfortunately we have been criminally negligent regarding our backbone. We are hell bent upon implementing the MFN status but as is customary, we are also being insensitive towards the farmers’ concerns. Things need to change, and quick.
