The APTMA leadership has appealed to Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif for ensuring continuous system gas supply to the mills in Punjab to keep wheels of textile industry operational.
To revive Punjab-based textile industry that is only possible through availability of energy at a regionally and internationally competitive price, the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) Punjab Chairman Ali Pervaiz has sought restoration of 28 percent system gas supply to the textile mills in order to carry forward the momentum of over 10 percent growth in exports due to the textile package.
He pinpointed while addressing a press conference at the APTMA Punjab office on Thursday. Patron-in-chief APTMAGohar Ejaz and other office bearers were also present on the occasion.
The industrial capacity worth $4 billion exports has been closed down due to the high cost of doing business in Punjab. Textile exports can easily be doubled in 3-4 years if enabling environment is in place, he added.
He also demanded immediate removal of all the tariff and non-tariff barriers on the import of cotton.
Speaking on the occasion, Gohar Ejaz pointed out that revival of 140 mills should be the foremost priority of the government. It is only possible through the availability of affordable energy at a tariff of Rs7 per unit electricity and Rs600 per MMBTU gas all across the county.
He lauded the efforts of Federal Minister for Textile Pervaiz Malik for taking initiatives towards revival and growth of textile industry.
