Pakistan: More Reservoirs Required

ISLAMABAD

Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) Saturday called upon the government to focus on the urgent construction of water reservoirs in the country to ensure overcoming water shortage and achieving sustainable economic growth. “Being an agriculture economy, Pakistan is heavily dependent on water resources, but according to a recent report of International Monetary Fund (IMF), Pakistan is third among the countries facing rising water shortage, which should be a cause of concern for policymakers,” ICCI President Sheikh Amir Waheed said in a statement issued here.
