Pakistan Hosiery Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PHMA) Chairman Dr Khurram Anwar Khawaja has appealed to the government to withdraw duty on cotton yarn import in line with the proposed withdrawal of custom duties on raw cotton import from India. “PHMA appreciates the move to withdraw duties and taxes on the import of cotton to encourage the value-addition and also demanded the same relaxation for the import of cotton yarn, which is a raw material for value-added knitwear sector,” he demanded.
