Demand for textile products from Pakistan has reached an all-time high, causing a demand-supply gap of about 700 million meters of cloth.
The Textile Industry in Faisalabad is facing the highest supply shortage in its history. For the textile sector, the normal production capacity is 90 crore meters. However, there is currently a shortage to meet demand, despite the mills being operational around the clock.
The Prime Minister took notice of this and issued orders for any supply chain issues to be resolved. He took to Twitter as well and said,
“As the textile industry in Faisalabad is seeing a massive increase in demand and export orders, I have instructed the Ministries of Commerce and Industry to provide the textile sector with all the necessary support to enable them to meet their increasing demands.”
As local demand for textile products is also stated to have increased significantly, the rise in demand does not only come from export destinations.
