During the same period of the previous fiscal, Pakistan’s textile and apparel exports stood at US$ 7.962 billion.
With a year-on-year rise of 31.27 percent, cotton yarn turned out to be the biggest contributor to the country’s textile and garment exports. 
Other commodities that positively contributed to the sector’s export growth include cotton cloth, whose exports rose by 11.77 percent year-on-year, knitwear grew by 2.29 percent y-o-y and yarn other than cotton yarn by 5.08 percent y-o-y.
