Value-added sector pleads for continuous energy supply

Sep '10
It has been sought of the government to ensure continuous supply of energy for the value added textile industry during winters.

The value added textile has urged the government to ensure that electric power and natural gas are continuously made available to the sector during winter, in order that the export sector could persistently work round the clock, to bring in the highly sought after foreign exchange to country's economy.

The sector emphasized on the fact that the knitwear garment export sector is endeavouring hard to reach the targets laid down under the Textile Policy 2009-14, but then this could only be materialized with an uninterrupted supply of electric power and gas to the industry.

Energy deficit is a known fact, but the government's Department in-charge together with the industry should properly address the issue, to minimize the loss that the industry suffers due to energy deficit.

They further stated that, in order to see the industry thrive, it is necessary to overcome the economic infrastructural flaws, thereby generating more employment opportunities for the youths.
