Pakistan fears losing export orders due to gas shortage

The issue came up for discussion during a meeting between Pakistan Textile Exporters Association Chairman, Sheikh Ilyas Mahmood, Khurrianwala Industrial Estate Association Chairman, Khurram Iftikhar, All Pakistan Bedsheet and Upholstery Manufacturers Association Vice Chairman, Ammar Saeed and others, a statement said.

“Gas is imperative to run the wheels of industry (and) in the absence of the basic fuel, how can the industry function,” the statement said. The industrialists were looking forward to framing of business-friendly policies by the government for economic revival, but they said such decisions went against the promises to facilitate the growth of trade and industry. 


Saying that the country needed investment to improve infrastructure and revive the economy, it pointed out that suspension of gas supply to the industries would discourage prospective investors from considering Pakistan as an investment destination.
