The exports of textiles and garments from Pakistan grew by 5.3 percent year-on-year to US$ 13.738 billion in the fiscal year 2013-14 that ended on June 30, according to the latest data released by the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics.
During July-June 2013-14, the exports of cotton cloth fetched $2.773 billion, showing a growth of 3.11 percent over exports worth $2.689 billion made during the previous fiscal year.
