SIALKOT: The government should set up sector-specific central, provincial and regional level task forces, which will help in formulating new policies for giving a boost to the country’s exports, said Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA) Chief Coordinator Ijaz Khokhar. Talking to media on Sunday night, he urged the government to focus on exploring unconventional international markets. “Effective steps should be taken to make the value-added textile industry competitive and vibrant in the international market,” he said. “The value-added garment sector is exhibiting considerable growth as it exports products worth $6 billion annually and is also a major taxpayer.” He lauded that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) had paved the way for new vistas of economic stability, industrial growth and development in Pakistan. He also urged the Chinese government to simplify the visa process, particularly for the business community.
