The Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA) has asked the Nawaz Sharif-led Government to soon appoint the Minister of Commerce.
It is surprising that the Prime Minister is yet to name a commerce minister or even decide the fate of the Ministry of the Textile Industry, even though the Government is about to complete 100 days in office, PRGMEA acting chairman Irfan Ali said in a statement.
Mr. Ali said at a juncture when it has become impossible to achieve export target and rulers are negotiating with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) once again, the trade and industry has been left to suffer.
He urged the Government to immediately name the commerce and textile ministers instead of abolishing the Ministry of Textile Industry.
PRGMEA is the premier trade organization representing the readymade garment industry in Pakistan. As a trade organization, it is recognized by the Government of Pakistan and affiliated with the Federation of Pakistan Chamber of Commerce & Industry, and with the Employers' Federation of Pakistan.
