Pakistan for the last many years is exporting textile goods and garments in many countries
of the world. The textile products made in Faisalabad are exported to Europe and many
other countries. Last year Pakistan was given GSP Plus status and it is predictable that the
demand for Pakistani textile products will boost up. At the other hand the condition at
home is different. The country has severe scarcity of gas and electricity, and everyday we
find workers and mill owners protesting on roads.
Jahagir textile mill (JTM) which was established last year is a strait of the art processing unit.

many big exporters in the country.
