Sohail Pasha has been appointed as the new Chairman of the Pakistan Textile Exporters Association (PTEA).
Hailing from a famous, prominent and successful business family, Pasha is an active member of the renowned business network Riaz Enterprises. He has earned a good name and a fame in exports, business and industry. He holds rich practical experience of 25 years as a professional management executive. He serves on the board of many charitable, health and educational institutions contributing to society. Faisal Nisar and Haris Yousaf are senior vice chairman and vice chairman.
The hope is that the new PTEA team would make its utmost efforts to meet the upcoming challenges and strive for an enabling environment to restore viability and growth of the textile industry and turn Pakistan into a destination for outsourcing of textile businesses. Serious efforts, strong lobbying, tangible initiatives and out of the box solutions are necessary to keep the textile industry operational.
Pakistan’s textile industry is a major contributor to the national economy. The country is taking all steps to attract foreign and domestic investment and revive sick units in the textile sector. The installed capacity of the manufacturing sector will be increased to enhance competitive import substitution, export enhancement, employment generation and revenue generation.
