Trade body to source overseas for cheaper fabrics

Apr '10
Shortage of yarn and its high prices in the local markets has been affecting the Pakistani textile exporters, till an extent that they are unable to meet their timely exports of goods.

A representative body has therefore been set up by the downstream textile industry to assist these exporters in purchasing fabrics at reasonable prices from different markets around the world, which will help resolve this issue.

The value-added textile industry resorted to this measure of tapping the global market to acquire fabrics at a cheaper rate, as they were upset over government's apathetic attitude towards resolving the country's worst ever yarn crisis.

A senior member from the Pakistan Readymade Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA) sighed over the time they had wasted in asking the government to help control rampant yarn exports and thereby, safeguard the value-added textile sector to sustain jobs of millions of workers.

After a recent meeting, PRGMEA's central committee decided to form the representative body that would help source out possibilities across the globe to acquire fabric at a cheaper rate.

High yarn prices in the country, led to soaring up of fabric prices dramatically by 50 to 75 percent, whereas prices in China increased only by 10 to 15 percent against those prevailing last year. This has forced the buyers from abstaining purchases from Pakistani exporters at such a high price.

The body, in addition to exploring different avenues for importing fabric at cheaper rates will also aid the exporters to retain their overseas buyers and their markets.
