According to Javed Chinoy, the Chairman of the Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (South Zone), Pakistan requires more trade entry rights in US and EU markets in order to deal with the challenges of corruption, joblessness and terrorism.
He, while speaking at an event at the Career Development Centre for garment industry at Pakistan Readymade Garments Technical Training Institute (PRGTTI), stated that if Pakistan, as a nation, is able to surmount the internal challenges then threats coming from outside can be easily dealt with, which will prove advantageous not only for Pakistan but for the entire world.
He further added that the training programme by USAID, for enhancing the skills of the workers employed in apparel factories, would become a landmark for the Pakistani products in improving their quality as well as obtaining higher prices in the global market. He pointed out that measures like EU's duty free access or the ROZ scheme are not enough for the country.
