NA Standing Committee's suggestions for enhancing textile sector

Jan '09
The National Assembly's Standing Committee recently suggested that Government should assist cotton growers by offering incentives for sowing cotton.

Federal Minister for textile industry, Federal Secretary and other representatives from all sectors attended the meeting and shared and discussed their problems. The committee, after discussions made few recommendations for the betterment of the textile industry.

The meeting held at the Parliament House and was chaired by MNA Haji Muhammad Akram Ansari, who said that cotton is one of the key sources of foreign exchange earning. It a matter of concern that condition of cotton growers is quite miserable. With more incentives cotton growers would produce more, which in turn would reduce country's imports.

The committee is quite keen to introduce Bt cotton to the farmers for better production of cotton. In this regard negotiations are in progress with multinational seed provider companies like Monsanto.

Recommendations were made to provide uninterrupted power supply and to ensure the availability of natural gas to the textile industry to avoid unemployment and financial crunch in the country. It is observed that due to the scarcity of electricity and non availability of gas the textile industry has sunk into a dire state.

The standing committee also suggested that spinning, weaving and processing sectors should be given full attention for the development of the textile industry.

The standing committee for textiles further advocated for textile education that is quite needed for the development of the sector. For that the committee recommended to set-up textile faculty in all engineering universities of the country.

The committee further advised to compile viewing and suggestions from all related sectors for making Textile Policy. The committee aims to constitute a sub-committee to monitor the formulation of Textile Policy and its implementations.
