Committee on Cotton sector to make presentation to President

The Committee on Cotton Sector is all set to make a detailed presentation to President Asif Ali Zardari on March 28 on a plan of action for improvement in cotton production per hectare.

The committee comprises of Chairman APTMA Gohar Ejaz, Chairman Pakistan Cotton Forum Sh Muhammad Akbar, Vice Chairman APTMA Shehzad Ali Khan and Asif Inam besides the agriculture scientists.

It may be noted that the President Office had expeditiously issued directions on All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) proposals relating to increase in cotton production and availability of energy to the industry. Chairman APTMA Gohar Ejaz had represented textile vision to President Zardari on behalf of textile industry during APTMA'S annual dinner in presidency on 11th Feb 2011.

The textile vision included short and term measures to overcome energy crisis, increase in raw materials production, interest rate regime and investments, market access and policy-implementation divide. According to the textile vision, the textile exports may touch the magical figure of $50 billion plus in five years instead of merely $w25 billion dollar, as envisaged by the first-ever-five-year textile policy of the federal government.

APTMA spokesman said the President Office has directed to constitute two separate committees.

The committee on cotton sector will devise a plan of action for improvement in all sectors and brief the President once a month.

Chairman APTMA had pointed out that immediate steps are required to increase cotton production per hectare. He had mentioned that Pakistan is producing presently 570 kg per hectare against 1250 kg per hectare in China, the spokesman added.

President has accordingly constituted a committee with agriculture researchers, industry stakeholders, and government representatives to meet on regular basis.

This committee has already met for primilinary work, followed by a second meeting at the presidency.
