The exports of textiles and garments from Pakistan declined marginally by 3.99 percent year-on-year to US$ 3.417 billion in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014-15 that began on July 1, according to the data released by the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics.
 
In July-September 2014, Pakistan’s knitwear exports grew by 11.16 percent year-on-year to US$ 632.233 million, while exports of non-knit readymade garments were up by 2.78 percent to $484.374 million.
 
Raw cotton exports fetched $49.943 million in the three-month period, showing a drop of 23.9 percent compared to exports of $65.631 million made during the corresponding quarter of last year. Likewise, cotton yarn exports fell by 21.78 percent to $463.216 million, as against exports of $592.185 million made during the same period last year.
