Pakistan's Punjab textile associations form new body
Dec '16
Pakistan’s Punjab based textile bodies have formed Punjab Textile Forum to boost textile business in the province by restoring competitiveness in exports. The forum has approached the government to seek support for the core issues being faced by the textile industry. The forum constitutes of the Punjab chapters of six textile associations.

All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (Aptma), Pakistan Textile Exporters Association (PTEA), Pakistan Hosiery Manufacturers Association (PHMA), Pakistan Readymade Garments Exporters and Manufacturers Association (PRGEMA), All Pakistan Textile Processing Mills Association (APTPMA) and the Council of Power Looms Association (CPLA) are members of the forum.

The new textile body has urged the Pakistan government to introduce textile industry revival package and help them to overcome structural imbalances in the industry as early as possible. Early announcement of incentive package by the government will increase the export orders at the Heimtextil exhibition next month, the forum members said at a joint press conference.

The representatives urged the government to charge nominal energy tariffs from the textile units in Punjab. They also asked the government to create more opportunities for the growth of textile industry in the province. It will be possible for the Punjab textile industry to compete at the international level if there is reduction in the cost of doing business. (RR)
