Splitting textiles to offer level turf for all players - PRGMEA

Jun '07
It has been learned that the Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers & Exporters Association (PRGMEA) had suggested that textile industry be split in different sections. This has been one of the most talked about topics and something Government is seriously considering. When contacted by Fibre2fashion Chairman Ijaz A Khokhar elaborated the proposition in detail.

He explained, “In nutshell, the demand from the Government is for a long term policy, so that the exporting community instead of keeping an eye on quick change in policies, can concentrate in congenial and relaxed environment, to draft export strategy, increase production, visit unexplored global markets.”

Khokhar said that the splitting textiles into three sections will provide an opportunity for sub-sectors to approach the relevant agencies enabling remedial measures to get the problems settled. This will also provide a level playing field for big and small manufacturers and efforts will be focused to improve production and export.

As for Research & Development industry, Chairman beamed, “Subsidy has helped to install new machines, expand areas and social compliance requirements have also been met. The results will obviously be encouraging. Training in-house labour is also strengthening skilled labour for the factories concerned. A number of plants are providing transport facilities and subsidized lunch as well. These steps are definitely advantageous to the exporters as well as the Government.”
