Cotton-yarn shortage: Disaster for downstream textile sector
05
Feb '10
Non-availability of cotton yarn in the country is causing difficulties for the value added textile exporters to fulfill international demands and exporters may face a number of cancellations of valuable orders and lose foreign markets resulting in the closures of many textile units and mass unemployment.

The exporters urged the government to take remedial steps immediately to make amendments in Ministry of Commerce S.R.O. 26(I)/2010 dated 14th January, 2010, which is complete eyewash and not beneficial for the value-added textile sector, said Mr. Javed Bilwani, at a press conference.

Mr. Bilwani, who is a spokesman of the Value Added Textile Associations (VATA) and Chief Coordinator, Pakistan Hosiery Manufacturers & Exporters Association added that the sector is struggling to obtain cotton yarn as it is the key input of value-added textile sector, which is being exported blatantly.

It is very awful that the cotton yarn, which is manufactured in Pakistan, is not available to country's own value added textile export sector but to its competitor countries, making them more competitive in the global market, he lamented.

Though a number of meetings have been held between stakeholders and the government; and facts and figures, showing rampant exports of yarn that are taking toll on value-added textile export sector, have been presented by the sector entrepreneurs, despite which, the government made manipulations in connivance with vested interests and issued an unrealistic S.R.O. that aims to swell cotton yarn export much more than estimated, regretted Mr. Bilwani.

Exports of cotton yarn should be curbed as well as the capping of exports should have been done on basis of quantity of exports of last year. In spite of the formation of much-hyped Textile Policy, last year, the country could not achieve export target of $25 billion, added Mr. Bilwani.
