Posting a year-on-year rise of 6.55 percent, Pakistan exported US$ 8.483 billion worth of textiles during July to February—the first eight months of the ongoing financial year 2012-13, Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS) data shows.
 
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.
