ISLAMABAD: COVID-19-hit textile industry in Pakistan is gradually resuming it's export business, says a report published by Gwadar Pro App on Thursday.

In recent days, both government and enterprises have implemented relative measures to awake stagnant textile industry. Up to now, domestic textile mills are gradually resuming productivity in accordance with the policies of government.

Salim Ghori, the CEO of Elite Demin Mills, who has been working in denim Industry for 25 years said in a interview to Gwadar Pro that “Covid-19 was a black swan event for textile industry which no one could have predicted.”

In Pakistan, textile industry accounts for 8% of GDP and over 46% of manufacturing industry. He introduced harsh situation faced by textile industry. “Such a situation has never arisen before. Since 19th March there was rarely production of denim fabric in textile sector. We have conservatively assumed that the production could start after 31st May at least.” Ghori said.

Textile export plays an important role for Pakistan economy. “A huge chunk of textile is exported to western countries. due to Covid-19 it will have a huge impact on Pakistan's balance of payment and we will be under huge crisis if this situation extends for a few months,” said Ghori.

“Our goods are exported to Western countries such US, UK, Italy, Spain, Germany etc. However, influenced by outbreak, there were plenty of export orders lost and the situation is very serious. There were many returns which led direct los s for our company.”

Even though, textile industry is gradually resuming. The government has allowed several companies to resume production with strict guidelines which are in accordance with WHO

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
