Reckless imports affecting textile industry

10
Sep '09
Uncontrolled imports are taking its toll on textile mills across the country, making them to face closure. For instance, the uncontrolled import of foreign blankets has reduced the production of blanket weaving industry.

Legal and illegal, as well as personal imports of fabrics and cloths have caused major difficulties for the industry. Allowing Cargo Dhows in the south to import goods independently has also been a factor responsible for increasing reckless imports.

Presently, large numbers of textile industries are facing reduction in liquidity and working capital. About 30 percent of the textile mills have not been able to employ their workers back, since the beginning of Iranian current year.

Countries such as Turkey, China, Pakistan and India are the major sources for flood of imported textiles. Import of cotton products from India in the past five months is equal to the last complete year in terms of value.

Presently, the biggest textile mill in the Middle East is in the city of Arak, which has also been affected by these circumstances. Besides, another large textile mill in the city of Golpayegan will soon come to halt.

Reckless textile imports are of course a threat for domestic textile products, which makes it necessary to take measures, in order to prop up and boost domestic production.
