Pakistan endowed a very poor industrial base at the time of independence in 1947. It was considered to emphasize more on import substitution policies to develop a strong economy. The new era of trade liberalization started in 1989. Government took number of steps towards free economy, and gradually introduced comprehensive macroeconomic and structural reforms in the country. Since 1999, Pakistan embarked on export led growth strategy which is being managed through successive trade regimes. This study was conducted in 2008 which covered the research work already undertaken related by impact of liberalization on agriculture. A total of fourteen studies were included in the review. These studies covered broad concept of globalization, free trade and its implications for the agriculture sector.
