PHMA seeks ban on import of Indian fabric via UAE

The Pakistan Hosiery Manufacturers & Exporters Association (PHMA) urged the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to ban import of fabric from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in order to salvage the local fabric industry.

In a letter to FBR Chairman Nisar Mohammad Khan, the PHMA complained that the entire fabric being imported from Dubai was of Indian origin and causing injury to the local industry.

“The unbridled import of fabric from UAE, though there are no manufacturing units of fabric in the country, is adversely hurting the local industry. This is all Indian fabric which is being imported in Pakistan via Dubai,” PHMA Chief Coordinator Jawed Bilwani said in the letter.

“The government should investigate the Indian fabric trade from UAE and should demand that UAE's exporters produce the Certificate of Origin of the fabric that is imported in Pakistan,” the letter went on to say.

The PHMA demanded that the government ban imports of fabrics from Dubai since it had no manufacturing units. This will save large numbers of weaving units in Pakistan that are currently non-functional or about to close down due to rampant import of Indian fabric, the letter added. (SH)
