Pakistan gets backing from Germany in the GSP plus status. The German Ambassador, Dr Cyrill Nunn said that more cooperation between Germany and Pakistan can be ensured by removing hurdles in export credit guarantee, security situation, vocational training for skill development, energy supplies and implementation of social compliances by Pakistan.
The 30 percent increase in textile export orders in Heimtextile to Pakistan is an encouraging sign so far as the GSP plus facility for Pakistan is concerned.
Speaking to the APTMA members at the APTMA Punjab office, the visiting envoy said an increase in textile orders to Pakistan suggest that the European buyers want to take advantage of the GSP plus facility to Pakistan. The Pakistan government has revised its growth rate from 3.6% to 5.1% for 2013-14, this is first indicator of GSP plus facility and more developments will take place by the end of year.
Dr Cyrill also appreciated the proactive role played by the APTMA in achieving the GSP plus status for Pakistan. He is of the view that the GSP plus facility may shift textile business from Vietnam to Pakistan in the years ahead. Moreover, the signs of growth can also be witnessed in other fields as well, covered under the GSP plus facility for Pakistan. He stressed that Pakistanâ€™s strong textile industry will be that of engine of growth.
