The federal minister of textiles, Mr Rana Farooq Saeed Khan said that the government is fully aware of the economic potential of the textile sector and that the President of Pakistan, during his recent visit to European countries stressed on the need to provide market access to Pakistani textile products.

Mr Khan said that, the textile sector is the backbone of national economy as it was contributing 60 per cent towards foreign exchange earnings in addition to offering 40 per cent jobs to the industrial work force in the country.

However, he said that PPP government has a privilege to announce a consensus, viable and most dynamic 5-year textile policy with main emphasis on enhancing production and export of value added textile products. He said that revival of textile sector would also create new job opportunities for the male as well as female work force in addition to enhancing our exports.

He said that President Asif Ali Zardari as well as Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani is striving hard to get the facility of direct access for Pakistani textile products. “I am optimistic that as a result of recent visit of President to UK and America, he would be able to convince those countries to give direct access to the Pakistani products” he said.
