APTMA demands immediate measures to save the textile industry from heavy production and export losses

Mr Asif Inam, Chairman – All Pakistan Textile Mills Association, Southern Zone, has demanded the government to save the textile industry from heavy production and export losses. He pointed out that despite the government vision of the higher priority of gas supply as compared to other industries, the textile industry has to observe one day closure of gas supply resulting in a delay in export shipments which is against priority and infringe their rights, as priority number 3 is being treated at par with priority number 4 and others which is causing daily production losses and delay in export commitments due to low gas pleasure and closure.

Chairman APTMA Southern Zone reiterates that the government and gas supply companies, without any consent of the textile sector, have merged the export-oriented sector having third priority in gas supply with other industries having fourth priority and also implementing one-day gas closure in different industrial areas resultantly the textile industry is suffering production losses and delay in export shipments.

Mr Asif Inam urged the government and gas supply companies to provide gas first to export-oriented industries, including textile, to run their mills without any disruption and fulfil their export commitments in time and then to other industries if they have enough gas supply.
