LAHORE: All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (Aptma) Punjab Chairman S M Tanveer has welcomed the assurance of importing LNG by November on war footing basis by provincial Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and expressed the hope that it will mitigate the energy constraints of the Punjab-based textile industry, a statement said.
He also appreciated the initiatives of the chief minister, including solar, coal and fast track import of LNG and said all these steps will overcome the energy constraints of textile industry.
The chief minister had already been supportive to the Punjab-based textile industry and provided gas and electricity supply on hourly basis in the wake of GSP plus facility from the EU, he said.
The approval of Aptma’s energy formula by the Punjab chief minister has eased down the energy constraints of the Punjab-based textile industry to a certain extent and the industry is highly grateful to him.
