Apparel Online - - Tex-file -

A two-day in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence on Emerg­ing Trends in Knit­ting was or­ga­nized at the Na­tional Tex­tile Univer­sity Faisal­abad (NTUF), in Pak­istan.

The event that kicked off on Fe­bru­ary 7, 2018, was aimed to bridge the gap be­tween the re­searchers and the pro­fes­sion­als work­ing in the knit­ting in­dus­try. The con­fer­ence was at­tended by var­i­ous CEOs, ma­chin­ery manufacturers, Govern­ment per­son­ages, in­dus­tri­al­ists and tech­ni­cal ex­perts from the in­dus­try.

The con­fer­ence was also at­tended by Pak­istan Hosiery Manufacturers and Ex­porters As­so­ci­a­tion (PHMA) Chair­man Mian Naeem Ah­mad, tex­tile work­ers and re­searchers. At the event, State Minister for Tex­tile Haji Muham­mad Akram An­sari as­sured the in­dus­try of bring­ing in am­i­ca­ble so­lu­tions to their prob­lems soon in terms of sup­port from the Govern­ment. Tex­tile, de­spite be­ing the ma­jor source of rev­enue and em­ploy­ment gen­er­a­tion for Pak­istan, faces chal­lenges such as de­clin­ing global mar­ket share, reach to new mar­kets, de­creas­ing prof­its and ag­gres­sive com­pe­ti­tion in the world mar­ket. An­sari said that events like these can play a vi­tal role in un­der­stand­ing lat­est in­no­va­tions and emerg­ing trends in tex­tile knit­ting which can ben­e­fit the in­dus­try to a great ex­tent in de­vel­op­ing the prod­ucts ac­cord­ingly.

No­tably, the venue of the con­fer­ence – Faisal­abad, rep­re­sents around 80 per cent of the en­tire tex­tile and gar­ment in­dus­try in Pak­istan. The prov­ince is also a home to the of­fice of In­ter­na­tional Ap­parel Fed­er­a­tion (IAF) which was in­au­gu­rated in De­cem­ber last year at Pak­istan Ready­made Gar­ments Manufacturers and Ex­porters As­so­ci­a­tion (PRGMEA) build­ing in Sialkot.
