EFL’s Head of Corporate Communication Nageen Rizvi informed this to the group of Agriculture Journalists Association during their visit to the EFL plant in Sahiwal. She said that foreign investment was not only strengthening the economy but also reduced unemployment and created better opportunities for the dairy farmers in Pakistan.
