OUR STAFF REPORTER LAHORE The Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers & Exporters Association (PRGMEA) has demanded the continuation of 3 percent Drawback of Local Taxes and Levis (DLTL) Scheme during 2011-12 to sustain growth in countrys exports. The association said that the government had introduced DLTL Scheme in September 2009 to make woven garments industry a manufacturing hub for highest value added products including availability of trained manpower, promotion of fashion designs and support in development and marketing of brand names. The PRGMEA said the woven garments sector has grappled impressive 38 percent growth during 2011-12. He said the woven garment industry has secured remarkable unit price with the increase in utilization of expensive fabrics. It has ultimately pushed the employment index of woven garment industry up, as millions of young workers are involved in skilled jobs in the industry. The spokesman said the average unit price has nearly doubled in 2010-11 and the use of expensive fabrics in different weights has been used by the garment industry. The garment industry has employed 30 percent of 3.5 million workforce of textile industry value chain, he added. However, the energy crisis has crippled the growth momentum of the woven garment industry altogether, as the production cost has hit through the roof since November 2007.
