The country's textile exports dropped by 9.4 percent compared to exports of US$ 9.95 billion achieved during the corresponding period of the previous fiscal.

During the July-March 2011-12 period, cotton yarn exports from Pakistan dipped by 25.5 percent year-on-year to US$ 1.26 billion, cotton fabric by 4.6 percent to US$ 1.75 billion, knitwear by 12.4 percent to US$ 1.47 billion, readymade garments by 2 percent to US$ 1.203 billion and bed wear by 12.7 percent to US$ 1.31 billion.
