Pakistan's Commerce Ministry to fund textile research

The Pakistani government has said that it would fund the research and innovation projects for the textile sector initiated by the National Textile University (NTU).

Commerce Minister Khurram Dastgir Khan said in Islamabad on Wednesday that his Ministry would take up the funding initiative, Pakistani newspapers have reported.

The minister said the project would establish a Textile Innovation Centre at the NTU to focus on the global demand for next generation fabrics, which includes technical and functional fabrics to provide new initiatives in the field of design and value-addition.

Khurram Dastgir Khan's remarks came while chairing the third meeting of the Federal Textile Board (FTB), which was attended by the representatives of all the associations of the textile value-chain and ministries concerned.

Khan told the FTB that in order to arrest the recent decline of exports in the sector, the Commerce Ministry was scheduling a branding and marketing campaign to re-launch Pakistan in the export world with the country's new and improved credentials.
