Textile Minister Cheema terms EU duty on home textiles “unfair”

Jun '05
Textile Minister Mushtaq Ali Cheema stated that the EU's decision of restricting Pakistani home textiles is unfair and unjustified.

He explained to the British High Commissioner Mr. Mark Lyall Grant who met him in his office, that the duty imposed on Indian and Bangladeshi textiles is much lower and all countries in this region should be treated equally.

Minister informed that the private sector has invested a huge amount in this sector so government would support them and be let them avail all possible facilities to enhance the sector.

This is main sector of our economy and playing very vital role in Pakistani economy, said Cheema.

Currently Pakistan is exporting cotton, yarn and various textile products but it is also working on value addition, as its produces of high-end quality of read-made garments and home textile products.

On the issue, the British High Commissioner Mr. Mark Lyall said the current budget is textile oriented and incentives given to the textile sector are considerable.

Pointing on anti dumping issue, Lyall explained that we will support Pakistan and try to seek resolution for this issue, as we is very big importer of its home textiles.
