The textile industry in Pakistan is quite efficient and it carries out energy audits at regular intervals, according to the head of the country’s largest textile body.
 
Speaking to fibre2fashion, Mr. Mohsin Aziz, Chairman of the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA), said, “Overall, Pakistan’s textile industry is very efficient. We have carried out audit on energy, be it gas or electricity, in the past and we keep doing it at regular intervals. This is done to conserve energy and avoid extra consumption of gas and electricity.”
 
When quizzed about the existing energy crisis and its impact on textile production, he says, “There might be some individual problems related to productivity. The failures are on the part of the Government, in case of energy crisis. On this front we may be inefficient, otherwise our textile industry is quite efficient and we can compare our efficiency with our competitors, including India.”
 
“Even here, the Government is trying to overcome the crisis. The textile industry in Pakistan is doing pretty well and we are trying to look for alternative sources of energy, especially in the province of Punjab,” he adds.
