KARACHI: Pakistan Apparel Forum Chairman Muhammad Jawed Bilwani in a letter to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday requested to appoint a minister for the textile sector, as the industry needed services of a full time minister.
The letter said that the post of federal minister for textile industry was lying vacant.
Pakistan Apparel Forum is a body of the value added textile export sector, and contributes $11.49 billion (45.36 percent of the nation’s total exports) to the national exchequer.
Bilwani has proposed the name of Haji Mohammad Akram Ansari, who headed the National Assembly Standing Committee on Textile Industry as chairman from 2008-13 and now serves as a member of that committee.
Ansari understood and took inputs from the stakeholders for the improvement of the textile industry during his chairmanship of the committee and had deep insight on the issues and problems, said the letter.
