Discussion Points:· 
Mr. Ali briefed Mr. Tino and Mr. Hans about the organization (EPFirms-USAID) and his visit to Baluchistan, where he had a very prolific meeting with progressive farmers/suppliers and the Government officials of Baluchistan. Mr. Nayyer Agha discussed the products they are already working on in Baluchistan, Mr. Nayyer Agha also discussed some of the areas of Baluchistan which are very near to Karachi. Therefore, there is a big opportunity for the products of Baluchistan to be shelved on the Metro CC Karachi and other countries.
Way Forward:
· Government of Baluchistan is very much interested in the implementation of the PC-1 of Government of Punjab; replicated the same project but on a smaller budget. Mr. Nayyer Agha has been sent the proposal by Star Farm Pakistan in which the PC-1 is focused, so that he can review the details of Punjab Government Project.
