KARACHI: President Mamnoon Hussain on Monday said differences are not solved on the streets and disagreements are settled through dialogue in the elected parliament.
He hoped that annoyed people will return to the parliament as the objective of politics is to restore confidence and satisfaction, it does not mean chaos.
He was addressing the 6th Export Trophy Awards 2012-13, ceremony organised by Rice Exporters Association of Pakistan (REAP), at a hotel here.
He said rice is one of the favourite crops throughout the world,and Pakistan also earns 10 per cent of its total foreign earnings from rice export.
Pakistan’s foreign earnings can be further increased, if modern and research-based methods are followed in rice production, he added.
He called for paying attention to research in rice production so as to overcome the weakness in specific areas and said the REAP can play a significant role by establishing research cells.
President Mamnoon Hussain said that research is not a static process and organisations like REAP should provide their feedback to the research institutions.
He expressed pleasure that Pakistan was exporting rice to 103 countries and suggested that more markets be explored.
He said the government has launched various projects for power generation to cater for domestic and commercial needs of the consumers.
As development projects are completed, the situation will surely be much better and all of us should cooperate with the government in development and betterment of the country, he said.
