Despite being affected by heavy downpour and floods that devastated large volumes of cotton crop in Sindh, Pakistan's textile exports have showed positive growth during the initial three months of the current fiscal ended September 30, 2011.

Textile exports from Pakistan grew at a rate of 10.34 percent to US$ 3.191 billion during July-September this year, over last year's corresponding period's exports worth US$ 2.892 billion, recently released data of the Federal Bureau of Statistics (FBS) stated.
