Apparel sector seeks ban on fine count yarn export

The trade body leaders of apparel and home textile sectors, who united together under the Pakistan Apparel Forum (PAF), demanded complete ban on coarse yarn export, as this yarn is extensively utilized by the domestic industry. The leaders demanded that only fine count yarn above 32s should be permitted for export.

Members of PAF are currently facing an acute shortage of yarn in the domestic market and as the whole value-added textile sector consumes coarse yarn below 32 single counts, it is necessary to ensure its availability, said PAF chairman Mr. Jawed Bilwani.

Apparel and home textile sector would face shut down of a numbers of its units, if the export of coarse yarn would not be restricted as well as if its availability for domestic industry would not be ensured, he added.

The domestic market is already going through an acute shortage of coarse yarn, which has resulted in a number of value-added units not being able to meet export commitments and if effective remedial measures are not taken, the sector would see a major retrenchment of workers, warned the PAF.

The towel manufacturing sector said that the textile spinning sector could help serve the nation by exporting yarns of only fine count and bring in maximum foreign exchange in to the country.

Experts expressed concern about the industry, which is facing difficulties for raw materials such as yarn though the country has all the natural resources in abundance, including raw cotton.

Improper government policies and lack of accurate planning are curbing the progress of the country; however it could do better if it takes efforts in value-addition and stops export of semi-finished raw materials, said the expert.

Majority of Pakistan's competitors are snatching its share in the world market, by importing raw material such as yarn and fabric from Pakistan and by value adding the same.

The government was urged to chalk-out a long term plan in order to generate more jobs in apparel and home textile sectors for the development of nation.
