In a meeting of PTEA Executive Committee held on Monday to elect PTEA office-bearers, Shaiq Jawed from J K Group of Companies was elected as Chairman while Mukhtar Ahmad Malik of Mehtabi Towels Mills Limited was elected as Senior Vice Chairman and Ammar Saeed of Ammar Impex as Vice Chairman for the term 2017-18.

Speaking on the occasion, Shaiq Jawed said that chairing the country's apex textile body is an honour as well as a challenge, particularly in this testing time. Presently textile industry is facing many challenges in almost all segments particularly high utilities cost, trade deficit as well as additional levies and other impediments directly affecting the cost of doing business, which has hampered exports of the country.

Textile sector will have to deliver to steer the country out of economic troubles. For this, we need the cooperation of not only the entire sector but also of value-added associations, he added.
