and Exporters Association (Prgmea), Mohsin Ayub Mirza said that there
were scores of samples of different textile items, which had been sent
to European and the US buyers could not reach due to aviation disorder.
The samples are likely to reach the destinations in two weeks, while
their sorting out by the buyers will also take an ample time, as a
result the local exporters will need to wait for at least three weeks
to finalize the production, he pointed out.He said that the production
process would not start until the exporters receive the final nod from
buyers. He added that the cost of production was also feared to mount
because of the flights rescheduling with inflated fares. The global
aviation disorder has drastically limited the local exporters traveling to and within Europe as well as to the Northern America, he
added.To a question, Mohsin said that the chaotic continent had also
struck delays to the textile sample shipments of other business rival
countries like Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, India and other countries”.He
said that the already hit local garments textile industry by the yarn
shortage had faced another disaster from the global chaos, hoping that
the traveling to European would soon return to normal. Prgmea
Chairman said that there were no worries about the production losses,
as these were minimal compared to the losses industry faced in the wake
of yarn shortage this fiscal year.Chairman Pakistan Apparel Forum
Muhammad Javed Bilwani expressed ignorance over the production had come
to a halt for a specific period because of European flights
cancellation. However, he said that he being a chairman had come to
know about the traveling problems of many exporters, as a result of
aviation disaster .
