Pakistan Textile Ministry to train cotton ginners

Sep '12
Eyeing capacity building of the country’s cotton industry and to enable it to produce quality output and thereby to boost exports and raise profitability of farmers and ginners, Pakistan’s Ministry of Textile Industry has decided to organize knowledge and skill enhancement training for cotton ginners in Multan, Sukkur and Bahawalpur, Cotton Development Commissioner in the Ministry of Textile Industry, Dr. Khalid Abdullah said.
 
The one-day training program would be held for 30 ginners in each of the cities, where they would be updated on observance of safety rules, efficient handling of tools and gauges and precautions relating to ginning machinery, he added.
 
The training aims to provide ginners basic knowledge regarding the cotton ginning process and its different aspects. It would also enable the trainees to spot safety precautions and measures.
 
The Ministry’s decision to train ginners assumes importance as Pakistan’s ginning industry is currently confronting challenging issues like contaminated cotton from the picking process, transportation and storage.
 
In the course of training, the ginners would be trained on enhancing production, improving transportation and storage of raw inputs through introduction of innovative techniques and machinery, Dr. Abdullah said.
 
He said mostly productivity suffers due to unskilled and untrained manpower, obsolete technology and outdated machinery, while in the post-production stage ginners suffer as they fail to obtain remunerative prices for their goods due to lack of marketing and negotiating skills to deal with domestic or overseas customers.
 
The ginners who would be imparted training would be asked to update and train factory owners and workers, and help them improve their marketing skills, he said.
 
About 33 percent of the total cotton in the country is in the form of fibre, 8 percent in form of trash and rest 59 percent is seed cotton, he added.
