While addressing the AGM, newly-elected SVC vowed to promote the Association to new heights. He thanked the members for reposing confidence on him to lead the PRGMEA.
Sheikh Luqman Amin said that it was an honour for him to assume the office of the Senior Vice Chairman for the year 2017-18. He paid tribute to the outgoing central chairman Ijaz Khokhar and vice chairman Jawwad A. Chaudhry. He said that the outgoing body in the lead of its chairman and VC had been actively promoting the interests of the garments industry throughout 2016-17. An uninterrupted supply of energy, both electricity and gas, was their top priority throughout their tenure.
Amin vowed to continue with his efforts for the promotion and protection of the value-added textile industry. His top priority would be uninterrupted energy supply to the apparel sector, resolution of tax related issues, and a favourable environment for the promotion of garment industry in Pakistan especially in Punjab. The Association would welcome the enabling environment provided by the government to the industry to inflate it in all diversities so as to avail opportunities under the GSP Plus status for Pakistan, he added.
The outgoing central chairman Ijaz Khokhar in his address expressed the hope that the new team headed by Sheikh Luqman Amin would continue the excellent work in the best interest of the entire value-added textile sector.[related_post themes="text" id="321856"]
