The textile industry of Pakistan would receive gas for two days a week as per the Federal Government’s decision, said Federal Minister for Finance Ishaq Dar, during the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) Textile and Clothing Show and Annual Dinner at the Punjab Governor’s house in Lahore.
 
The Finance Minister said the Government is taking tangible measures to overcome the energy crisis in the country and 41,000 mega watts power will be added to the system in next few years, reports APP.
 
Congratulating the textile industry and the nation for attaining the Generalized Preferences Plus (GSP+) status from the European Union (EU), Mr. Dar said the preferential market access to EU markets would help boost the country’s ailing economy, revolutionize the textile sector of the country and improve infrastructure in Pakistan.
 
The APTMA Annual Dinner and Textile and Clothing Show featured a fashion show by some of the leading designers of the country, including ace designer Ali Xeeshan, who opened the designers segment of the show with his black and white themed creation of gowns, followed by Omar Farooq of Republic’s Menswear who showcased a collection of winterwear for men.
 
The Textile and Clothing fashion show closed with designer Faraz Manan who presented a formal and bridal wear collection in collaboration with Crescent Textile Mills, created under the theme ‘East meets West’, divided into color specific segments. The entire collection had a profuse and generous use of sequins, gold embellishment and a lot of bling, as well as lots of net, chiffon and lace as the dominant fabrics.
 
The show also saw participation from a delegation of the European Parliament’s ‘Friends of Pakistan Group’, who attended the event in order to discuss strengthening EU-Pakistan relations following the granting of EU GSP+ status.
 
Federal Minister for Petroleum Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Minister of State for Commerce and Textile Industry Engr. Khurram Dastgir Khan were also present during the event.
