Summary: 
The yarn producers have urged the government to reduce import duties on the import of PSF from existing 7 percent to 2 percent as polyester prices have almost doubled in the last year. The meeting was also of the view that one of the main causes of the non viability of domestic polyester fiber chain is the protection extended to the obsolete PTA plant over the last 25 years. The import duties on its raw materials are zero yet the finished product PTA is being given protection of 6 percent despite making huge profits which is a big reason for the predicament and non viability in the export market of Pakistani produced manmade textiles.
