“We really give due recognition to the crucial role that our farmers and fishermen play because they are the heroes in the countryside. Especially during this pandemic, they are still farming and fishing, and the country’s food is enough”, Dar said.

“The role of PSAU and various universities and colleges all over the country is important. We ensure the continuous communication and research which is one of the responsibilities of the university. We also assist them to ensure that they can focus in terms of technologies,” the secretary added.
