Chairman APTMA urges govt to ensure uninterrupted supply of gas to the industries of Sindh

February 11, 2019: Mr. Zahid Mazhar, Chairman, All Pakistan Textile Mills Association, Sindh-Baluchistan Region has demanded the government that natural gas should be provided to the industries of the province of Sindh without any interruption and be diverted to the other provinces only after meeting the requirements of the industries of Sindh.

He said that the continuous supply of gas with full pressure is the need of the hour as the government is keen to enhance exports for the prosperity and economic development of the country as the country has already suffered de-industrialization and decrease of manufacturing sector’s share in the GDP from about 22 percent to 13.5 percent.

He also urged the Federal and Provincial Governments to issue instructions to SSGCL for continuous and uninterrupted gas supply to the industry of Sindh in general and export oriented sector in particular, otherwise the industries would be compelled to close their operations which will create irreparable losses to the economy of Pakistan.
