Power cut affects textile industry
Jan '08
Textile industry of Pakistan has been suffering tremendous loss because of high cost of production, low cotton produce and many other factors. To add to this, the recurrent power cuts in the country have worsened the situation.

Most of the Pakistan's weaving sector is dominated by small powerloom weavers which are largely dependent on an uninterrupted power supply for their production. On the contrary, the interior of Sindh including Hyderabad, Sukkur, Mirpurkhas, Jacobabad, Kashmore, Kandhkot, Shikarpur witness day and night load shedding.

All the textile mills here, will have to remain shut for over five hours every day until the completion of two weeks because of frequent power cuts.

Sources from the industry believe that this problem has been aggravated after the assassination of Benazir Bhutto on December 27. Besides, experts consider that the 7 percent GDP target aimed for this year may not be achieved because of such disturbing working conditions.

Further, country's rate of growth may even get impeded because of the impact of high global oil prices and domestic political turmoil.
