Ongoing global turmoil makes apparel exporters jittery

According to the value-added textile exporters, the recent catastrophe that shook Japan and the ongoing unrest in North Africa and the Middle East may adversely hit Pakistan's export of apparel items.

Due to the rapidly changing political conditions in North Africa and the Middle East, they are foreseeing a fall of 20 percent in Pakistan's apparel items exports.

Further, unscheduled power suspension in the industrial zones together with worsening law and order situation in Karachi are also viewed to further adversely affect the garment production in the country, during the current season.

Production was continuously suffering due to factors like; frequent strike calls by the religious and political parties, and bad law and order situation, following which the exporters were finding it difficult to meet the export deadlines.

In addition to this, unscheduled electricity load shedding in the industrial zones was also hindering the production process, resulting in a daily production loss of at least 12 percent, which too was preventing the exporters from accepting more export orders, for fear of not being able to deliver goods in time.

Editorial note – Despite the various challenges faced by the Pakistani textile sector, they have been able to increase exports by 30 percent in the first nine-months of the current fiscal year.

However, the concerns raised by apparel exporters are valid and these factors could have the potential to throw a spike in export growth in the last three months of the fiscal.
