“Pakistan is rich in buffalo breeds, buffalo research, and buffalo milk production. To leverage its advantages and enhance Pakistan-China cooperation in this field, we hope to set up a dairy processing plant in Pakistan,” Chen Yiyi, President of Royal Group, told China-Pakistan Agricultural and Industrial Cooperation Information Platform (CPAIC) after completing a week-long visit to Pakistan.
Gu Wenliang, Agriculture Commissioner of the Chinese Embassy in Pakistan, told the reporter that Pakistan is the fourth largest milk producer in the world, with buffalo milk accounting for 60%.
There are 41 million buffaloes in Pakistan and milk yield is higher than that in China. According to an Economic Survey report of Pakistan’s government, in fiscal year 2019-20, the output of buffalo milk in Pakistan reached 256,000 tons.
