Pakistan’s value-added textile exports to China on a growth trajectory.

April, 2011 DESTINATION: CHINA Pakistan?s value-added textile exports to China on a growth trajectory Research Department Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers & Exporters Association (PRGMEA) Highlights: ? Pakistan?s value-added textile exports to China witnessed tremendous growth during the last fiscal year 2009-10. However, the value and quantities exported were still a minor fraction of total exports. ? China lowered its customs tariffs for Pakistan in 2010 under Pak- China Free-Trade Agreement (FTA) but duties on woven and knitted garments are still averaging around 10%. Import duties on most home textiles are however, at 0% on average. ? China with its population of more than 1.3 billion people and an economy growing at more than 7% represents an increasingly attractive market for Pakistan?s value-added textiles exporters in contrast to the saturated markets of USA & EU. ? Despite no import duties on home textiles, Pakistan?s exports to China under this category (chapter 63 of HS codes), grew to US$ 9.4 million in FY 2009-10 in comparison to US$ 7.02 million in FY 2008-09, representing an increase of about 35%. This means that advantages of Pak-China FTA are still not fully known to the home textile exporters where Pakistan has a definite edge. ? Pakistan?s garment and home textile exporters need to devise an aggressive and focused strategy focusing on increased participation in Chinese domestic trade fairs, opening of offices in China and reaching out to Chinese importers and wholesalers. Overcoming language barrier and learning Chinese way of doing business is of extreme importance in order to gain advantage in this important market. ? As import duties come down further, this represents an opportunity for Chinese textile manufacturers as well, to shift some of their production to Pakistan thus benefiting from lower costs. 1 | P a g e Woven Garments (Chapter 62): ? Overall, woven garments under 36 categories where exported to China during the years 2008-2010. In FY 2009-10, garments worth approx. US$ 998,000 were exported, in contrast to US$ 390,000 in the preceding year, showing a growth of 156% but representing only 0.09% share in Pakistan?s total exports under the woven garments category. ? Quantity exported also increased to 19,800 dozens in FY 2009-10 from 15,000 dozens in the preceding year, showing a growth of 32%, but representing only 0.08% share in quantity exported from Pakistan in this category. ? Overall, exports in 10 new categories of woven garments were done during FY 2009-10, whereas exports under 11 categories were discontinued. ? Overall, 10 woven categories, namely, men?s cotton suits, men?s shorts and similar articles of cotton and of other textile materials, women?s cotton suits, women?s cotton overalls and similar articles and of other textile materials, women?s cotton dressing gowns, men?s swimwear, shawls etc and gloves showed an increase over preceding year. ? 4 items, namely, men?s as well as women?s suits of other textile materials, skirts and women?s other garments recorded a decline over preceding year. 2 | P a g e Item wise details: S.
