Pakistan government likely to restore Ministry of Textile industry in coming days, to take full advantage of GSP plus status also as the textile industry circles had been agitating against the merger of textile ministry with the commerce ministry, saying that both India and Bangladesh had also merged their textile ministries with commerce ministry but they too ultimately restored its status.

They are hopeful that the Prime Minister will notify the independent status of Ministry of Textile Industry without any further delay. According to the sources close to the Federal Commerce Minister, Khurram Dastgir Khan, the Prime Minister is likely to notify restoration of the Ministry of Textile Industry in the coming days. They said the decision is being taken to reap full benefit out of GSP plus status.

It may be noted that the government had merged it with the Ministry of Commerce in the past. However, the present government separated it again from the Ministry of Commerce before Khurram Dastgir took oath as Commerce Minister. However, the federal secretary textile division, Rukhsana Shah, when contacted, said that the status of the textile division was not clear yet and he has no idea whether it is being restored as a full-fledged ministry or not.
