As per Khurram Mukhtar, Chairman Pakistan Textile Exporters Association (PTEA) and Vice Chairman, Sohail Pasha, the fabric export segment is the key generator of foreign revenue, almost to the tune of over US $2 billion per year. ..Fabric exports have fallen by $175 million, due to unrestricted yarn export. Comparing the figures, Mukhtar said that, fabric exports during July-April 2008-09 were $1641 million, whereas in the same period during 2009-10, fabric exports reduced to $1465 million. ..Due to free cotton yarn exports from the country, exports of fabric in April 2010 had fallen by $550 million standing at $1619 million from $1624 million, registered in March 2010. ..Emphasis was laid by PTEA on the 18 million labourers and wage earners who were most likely to turn unemployed, incase the value-added segment of the country was pushed towards closure. ..When yarn is exported it fetches the country only $1 per kg, but when the same one kg of yarn is converted in to value-added textiles it brings in $8 in to the country. Therefore, what was the sense behind exporting only yarn, quizzed PTEA members to the government .
