APTMA seeks compliance of energy conference decisions

Apr '12
The textile industry of Pakistan is in dismay over non-compliance of the President's orders and decision of exempting the individual industrial feeders from power outages and ensuring a five-days-a-week gas supply to the industry, taken at the Prime Minister's Energy Conference.

Expressing disappointment over the Government's apathy, All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) Group Leader Gohar Ejaz said there was no sign of implementation of the decisions, even though considerable time has lapsed after the conference.

However, he said they are optimistic that the Government would keep its promise made to the textile industry, in view of its contribution to the country's exports and employment.

Speaking at a press conference, Mr. Ejaz said the textile industry is eagerly waiting for the Government to comply with the decisions taken at the energy conference.

Mr. Ejaz said it was decided in the energy conference to treat textile industry of Punjab on par with those in Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) domain.

Moreover, the industry serves as a source of employment for around 15 million people, which is one more justification to the industry's demand for exemption from electricity load-shedding, he added.
