Pakistan's Minister for Textile Industry, Makhdoom Shahabuddin, has said that his Ministry functions as a facilitator for the country's textile industry and it is the responsibility of the Ministry of Power to solve the issue of gas load shedding.

At a meeting with representatives of various associations of Pakistan's value-added textile sector, the Minister said the textile industry functions as a private sector in the country and his Ministry could only play the role of a facilitator to address the issues facing the industry.

While mentioning that the issue of electricity load shedding fell under the ambit of the Power Ministry, he stressed on the need to identify factors that hampered setting up of energy projects in the country.

He also emphasized that biogas projects could be set up in rural areas of the country to cater to domestic demand for fuel.

The National Assembly's Standing Committee on Textile has been asked to ensure the participation of the officials from the Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) in the next meeting of the Ministry to be held in Karachi, Mr. Shahabuddin said.

The Minister disclosed that the Ministry had excluded 77 items from the negative list prepared for trade with India under the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status.

He informed that his Ministry will soon introduce new policies with an objective to double the country's value-added textile exports.
