Chairman of APBUMA appealed to the OEKO-TEX(r) Standard 100 to restore the certification of local value-added industries and educate them about the world standards so that they could keep continue their business with European Union and other western countries.

According to him, OEKO-TEX need to issue warning if any procedure was not being adopted by the manufacturer. He also informed the Federal Minister for Commerce Engr. Khurram Dastgir Khan about their grievances.

Syed Muhammad Aasim Shah said that Multan is the export hub of traditional yarn dyed Home Textile items across the globe and it was the only competitor of India.
