Islamabad: The Government is finalizing Textile Policy 2014-19 focusing on promotion of value addition to enhance growth in the sector’s exports. According to media reports policy was being framed in consultation with all the stakeholders and Small and Medium Enterprises would be given due importance.
The Government was conscious of the fact that only textile industry could provide jobs in large number. The policy would encourage exports of value-added textile goods rather than raw material and semi-finished goods. The upcoming policy would cater to the entire chain of textile industry.
