Pakistan urged to up textile trade with ECO countries

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has been called on to utilise its political and diplomatic ties to boost its trade with the Economic Cooperation Organisation (ECO) nations to support its domestic value-added textile industry.

The ECO is an intergovernmental regional organisation for promoting economic, technical and cultural cooperation among its 10 member states – Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
Currently, Pakistan’s textile item exports to ECO countries are not satisfactory and they stood at just $49.81 million during 2010.
