APTMA elects Asif Inam as new Chairman

Being a senior businessman and a reputed name in textile sector and after serving as Vice Chairman in APTMA, Asif Inam has been elected as newly-elected central chairman of All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA).  While delivering speech on the occasion of 64th Annual General Meeting of APTMA, he has vowed to restore the viability of the textile industry to ensure growth and sustainability.  The newly-elected office bearers including senior vice chairman Rehman Naseem, vice chairmen Naveed Ahmed and Asad Shafi and newly elected members of the Central Executive Committee were also present on the occasion. As it is very unfortunate situation that the textile industry, which is mainstay of economy, leading foreign exchange earner and employment provider through backward and forward linkages, was currently passing through unprecedented period of crisis?  Consequently, the capacity to produce over $5 billion worth of exports is already closed. As the textile industry has already invested over $5 billion and ready to further invest one billion dollar annually in case the government ensures a congenial environment to double the exports in next five years
