Punjab Govt to promote carpet industry

Pakistan is a leading manufacturer and exporter of carpets across the globe and 80 percent of its carpet industry is established only in Punjab, one of its provinces. Hence, special steps have been taken by the provincial government to promote and encourage the carpet industry by providing training and facilitation to the manufacturing units, informed a Ministry official.

The official was speaking at the annual exhibition of hand-knotted carpets, organized by the Pakistan Carpet Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PCMEA) in a bid to promote country's carpet industry. The government of Punjab aims at increasing its carpet exports by three times, for which it has decided to impart training to the carpet manufacturers.

The training will include special knotting methods to augment the beauty and superiority of their handmade carpets, which fetch three times greater price in the international markets. Following the proposal of Punjab Board of Investment and Trade (PBIT), Punjab Small Industries Corporation (PSIC) is intending to provide soft loans to women carpet weavers to help them establishing their own carpet manufacturing units.

The PSIC and Pakistan Carpet Manufacturers and Exporters Association are finalizing the modalities for this project, informed the official. For maximum promotion of Pakistani carpets and to attract hordes of international buyers towards it, the Punjab government will provide full support to the sector, added the Ministry official.
