Textile producers team up to reduce illicit imports of textiles

Textiles importers and producers have come to a mutual agreement to minimize the long-pending issue of low-priced imported textiles, which is giving unfair competition to domestically produced ones.

Only last week, the two parties agreed to come together, after the Task-Force team organized a meeting between the stakeholders and the Textile Importers Association, to implement the new vital measures.

Setting up this meeting was of the many duties that were listed for the Task-Force a couple of months back. The move, which was initiated to see the removal of all fake textiles imported in to the country, is finally giving positive outcomes.

The importers agreed to be part of the meeting as it was compulsory and also, they thought that it will eventually profit them for their business.

The importers were also informed that although, all of them were genuine, and paid their duties required by the law and also abided by the procedures that were laid by the Standard Board for testing their designs, so that no problems are encountered in the future while they import, there were a few who were rotting the entire basket.

Importers have also agreed upon getting imprisonment to those responsible for illegal imports of goods into the country.

During this week, the Task-Force is scheduled to meet again, so as to further plan on the results of their meetings, thereby strategize to ensure effective implementation.
