Ginners could be first casualty of spinners strike

12
Mar '10
In the midst of the turmoil created due to the cap on yarn exports imposed by the government of Pakistan, no one seems to have given a thought, of the impact on the stakeholders in the very first stage of the textile value-chain.

As per the observations made by Mr Rana Abdul Sattar, Chairman of the Pakistan Cotton Ginners Association (PCGA), the ginning sector will suffer if the issues raised by the spinners of the country do not find redress from the government.

Speaking exclusively to Fibre2fashion, Mr Rana said that, “There should be a free market mechanism, along with which, since most of the finished products are made from cotton, we ginners, do not favour a cap on yarn exports.”

He observed that the long and fragmented textile value-chain was entwined with each other and a break in production in any of the segments of the value-chain had the potential to create havoc in the cotton ginning industry.

He was referring to the warning of a strike call given by the members of the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) and added by saying that the cotton ginning community would be the first casualty of the strike.
