Ijaz A. Khokhar, Chief Coordinator of Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA) has urged the government to set up sector wise, central, provincial and regional level task forces to boost exports in the sector. He advised the government to take effective steps for making the value-added textile industry competitive and vibrant in International market. According to him, the value-added garments sector was showing considerable growth as it exported $6 billion products and was a major tax payer.
Khokhar says, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) opened not only fundamentals of industrial cooperation between the two friendly countries but also had paved the way for new vistas of economic stability, industrial growth and development in Pakistan. He therefore urged upon the Chinese government to simplify the visa process particularly for the business community adding that Chinese Embassy in Pakistan should grant multiple visas to Pakistani businessmen.
