The significance of textile sector in Pakistan’s economy can hardly be debated. Punjab Board of Investment & Trade (PBIT) convened a roundtable, bringing together notable textile sector stakeholders including prominent members from APTMA. In terms of strategy towards the sector, Punjab should place special emphasis on attracting and growing the value-added garment industry in Punjab. It is a relatively low-energy consuming industry, and has an immense job-creation potential. In this regard, exploring linkages with China, especially with industry on China’s west coast that is closer to Pakistan in terms of physical distance, in the form of contract manufacturing of garments could be an interesting avenue to explore. This strategy could be very important given the context of rising domestic consumption in China. The Government of Punjab may work with the large textile players in the country to implement this strategy through its Special Economic Zones, such as Quaid-e-Azam Apparel park (QAAP).
