Value-added sector upset with domestic yarn quality

The value-added textile industry of Pakistan is facing problems as the spinners have raised the moisture level in cotton yarn, and are supplying yarn spinned from poor quality cotton, Jawed Bilwani, Chief Coordinator of the Value Added Textile Forum said.

He said this was the main reason; Bangladesh outshined Pakistan, and moved ahead in the spinning industry.

Owing to its superior quality that it offers, global buyers prefer buying cotton yarn from India, than Pakistan.

The value-added textile sector has remained to be the biggest customer of the spinning industry over the last two decades, Bilwani said.

Till recently the payment terms of the spinners were very moderate, but now they have started demanding advance payment with stipulation that yarn would be delivered only after clearance of cheque, he added.

Bilwani even claimed that, All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) was deceiving people by propagating that the spinning industry's exports for the current year was 20 percent lower than in 2009-10.
