Towel manufacturers urge ban on coarse cotton yarn exports

The Pakistan Towel Manufacturers Association (TMA) has urged the government to stop the export of coarse count cotton yarn, in order to save the value added, towel manufacturing sector.

The Chairman of TMA, Feroze Alam has said that due to high exports of cotton coarse yarn, the towel producers were facing a shortage of the same, which has led to an explosive increase in prices of the yarn.

This in turn, he said had increased the costing for the sector, leading to a reduction in competitiveness and could also lead to a decline in exports from the sector which had exported towels worth US $1 billion in the previous fiscal year.

Exports of coarse yarn has been able to make inroads in to markets like India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka due to its cost competitiveness and quality and experts suggest all stake holders including the government resolve the matter amicably.

They aver that banning exports of coarse cotton yarn is not the solution since, only 25-30 percent of cotton yarn production is exported and the rest of the 70 percent is consumed by the value added sectors in the country.
