Gas suspension adversely affects home textile exports

Jan '11
Pakistan's home textiles exports worth 80 million dollars had been adversely affected by gas suspension and electricity crisis over a period of last eight days thereby causing 8000 daily wage earners to lose their jobs.

It has been anticipated that the fresh spell of gas suspension will adversely hit the industry and have serious effects on the economy as it may cause a drop in the industrial output and may lead to a failure in the fulfillment of export commitments. The entire textile sector is in terrible condition as a result of the gas load shedding over a period of last eight days.

The textile exports of Pakistan received a deadly blow owing to the suspension of gas supply. Textile exports were already under rigorous pressure as a result of the rising raw material prices and increase in the prices of overhead commodities. The Sui Northern Gas authorities have slashed the supply of gas to the textile producing mills over the last eight days as a result of the enormous gas shortage.

In case the textile sector undergoes a closure then there is a possibility of deterioration in the law and order situation of the country due to large-scale unemployment. Escalating production costs of the export products is further expected to increase the problem of inflation. The Pakistan government needs to focus on this issue immediately, said an expert.

The government has been following a discriminatory policy as gas supply has been suspended for five days every week in case of Punjab whereas the other areas are having continuous gas supply. Most of the daily wage earners have been rendered jobless. Under such circumstances, textile units are forced to dismiss their permanent employees as well as workers so that they can maintain the costs at a minimum low level. Some of the industrialists are even bound to run their units in loss.

The Pakistan government should urgently decide to resume the supply of gas to the industrial units for at least five days, according to an expert, otherwise it has to face the dire consequences.
