Director of the National Projects, Gen-Prom UNDP, Maham Nasira recently stated that, the textile sector in majority of the South Asian countries, including Pakistan, greatly relies on contract workers for their operations.

So, it has become bit difficult for these textile producers to comply with the social requirements for global buyers. However, she added that by fulfilling these requirements, Pakistan can boost its textile exports.

While addressing a conference on “Social Compliance for the Foreign Buyers” organized by the Pakistan Readymade Garments Technical Training Institute (PRGTTI) at the Institute, she stated that, most of the apparel units like sewing, packaging and finishing hire contract workers and owners of these factories too instead of paying directly to the workers, pay to the contractors.

The official further said that, by complying with these requirements, the textile and apparel exporters from Pakistan can gain parity with their competitors in other countries like India, Turkey, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia and South Korea.

She revealed that, as over 80 percent of the workers in most of the factories are employed on contract basis and the contractors only provide and manage these workers, it is difficult for the factory owners to maintain records, pay registers and timings of these workers, and thereby to satisfy the social compliance requirements of the global buyers.

She informed that, the PRGTTI-CDC held two sessions at the seminar to discuss and recognize the contract labour related issues which are hindering, meeting the requirements of social compliance, and to work out a solution for these issues.
