Monday's meeting of Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the Cabinet deserves praise for it has taken a key decision in relation to the plight of cotton growers by constituting a committee on intervention price of cotton to increase the descending production of cotton.

That agriculture is a potential game changer that can revitalize the entire economy of the country is a fact. Cotton has a very important role to play in this regard. Cotton is a national asset that has been neglected over the years. Successive governments have taken cotton production for granted. Every possible step must be taken to increase cotton production in the country.
