Shabbir Ahmed, chairman of the All Pakistan Textile Processing Mills Association (APTPMA) and former chairman G. R. Arshad said that there was still room for improvement and further incentives for the export-oriented industrial sector despite some improvements in the recent budget.

Changes made in the budget would do a great deal to ease financial difficulties for the textile sector, they said, but more incentives were needed to help export-oriented industries build up business.
