Meanwhile, the textile sector has grown exponentially since last year, attributed partially to the lockdowns in European countries which lead to the shutdown of businesses, hence, reduced competition.

Adviser to Prime Minister on Commerce and Investment Abdul Razak Dawood has assured that the problems of the textile sector would be raised with PM Khan and the federal cabinet in a virtual meeting earlier this month.

During the meeting, the advisor said that the government would try to resolve the problems that the textile industry has been facing.

Associations representing the textile industry asked Mr. Dawood to abolish all taxes and duties using the presidential ordinance and permit the duty-free import of cotton yarn which is the primary raw material value-added textile industry.
