TEXTLE SECTOR OF PAKISTAN
Textile Processing Sector has been operative virtually since the very inception of Pakistan in 1947. With the sudden upsurge of Textile industry in Pakistan duringthe fifth and sixth decades when quite a few Textile Spinning and CompositeUnits started picking up roots and Power Loom Units sprang up like mushroom inPakistan in the unorganized sector, in every nook and corner, whose number rose to about 0.3 million plus. As out of necessity, a proportionate number of Processing Units was required for dyeing, bleaching, printing, sunforising,finishing, packing and packaging of the raw-fabric which was being mass-produced by the unorganized Power Loom Sector. And this was the occasionwhen the entrepreneurs and pioneers of the Processing Sector rose to theoccasion and, remarkably enough, came out with flying colors. Despite their meager resources, they succeeded not only in making the country self-sufficientin dress andapparel, but also in providing quality fabrics to the International Export Marketwhile their quality was second to none.The Textile Processing is one of the most value-added and export-oriented sector of Textile Industries in Pakistan.
