Apparel sector demands 30% penal duty on yarn exports

The value-added textile sector, is not happy with the government proposal to impose 15 percent regulatory duty on exports of yarn from the country, has instead demanded imposing 30 percent regulatory duty.

A former Chairman of the Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA), Bilal Mulla, demanded imposition of 30 percent regulatory duty on yarn exports for six months.

He said, “Imposing duty is a step in the right direction, but, is still not enough to ensure proper availability of yarn for domestic sector. The decision should have been taken earlier, due to which the spinning sector made profits at a cost to the nation.”

He added by saying that, the valued added sector generates employment opportunities for 18 million people from all sections of the workforce and earns huge foreign exchange, while other industries are not in a position to provide such huge employment capabilities.

He informed that, the government stands to lose only $2 per kg by imposing restrictions on yarn exports, but on the other hand, value addition by the textile sector helps generate $12 per kg.
