Make value-added Pak textile sector
Chief coordinator of Pakistan Readymade Garments
Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA) Ijaz A Khokhar
recently urged the government to take steps to make the
value-added textile industry competitive and vibrant in the
international market. Special attention should be paid to
establish sector-wise central, provincial and regional task
forces, he said.
The government should explore non-traditional markets and the
task forces will help it formulate policies to bring in a
visible change in the export sector, he said.
The government should promote entrepreneurship and constitute
a special committee on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)
with concerned trade associations to take care of interests of
the domestic industry and investors, Pakistani media reports
quoted Khokhar as saying.
