The Pakistan Prime Minister in his meeting with all the textile industry stakeholders in September had very wisely desired the Textile Ministry and the textile industry to come up with a long-term policy for the revival and growth of the textile industry. All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) has urged the government to announce and lay down the implementation mechanism for the agreed long-term policy. APTMA Chairman Aamir Fayyaz stressed that an early announcement of the policy will help reverse trade account deficit and thereby contribute to the country’s progress and prosperity.
