Realizing the responsibility on the shoulders
of each member of PCFA, we endeavor to be one of the most competitive
Associations in the industry with emphasis on efficiency in operations,
reliability and thrust on discovery and development of New Fashion
and manufacturing technologies.
We are a Association, which was cradled by the most arduous and sincere entrepreneur in the country, benefited with the support of the
flourishing economy of the state and the presence of a diligent citizenry eager to attain success.
The success and eminence of Pakistan Cotton Fashion Apparel Manufacture exporters Association (PCFA) began as the dream of one man
extended to be transformed into the dream of many. We strive to accomplish our dreams and goals to bring greater effulgence in the
We are trying to seek advantages in the quality of our market, access to the leading consumers of cotton and fashion apparel. In the
post quota era, we must use the World Trade Organization regulations to our benefit and ensure that measures other countries are taking

We must appreciate the hectic efforts of our commerce Minister in getting preferential market access for Pakistani products into major
markets like the U.S. & E.U. Pakistan has also assumed leadership at the W.T.O. negotiations in Hong Kong getting critical protection
from the threat from countries with duty free & quota free access.
With a growing exportable surplus, our existing road and rail infrastructure
will soon be inadequate to transport our exportable surplus from
upcountry industry clusters. We also need to streamline passage
to our ports. We must ensure that our trade corridor is developed
as soon as possible and as efficiently as possible.
Pakistan is one of the leading cotton and Fashion apparel manufacturers in the world. However, our value-added sectors, particularly
apparel and knitted clothing have a very small share in the world trade. These sectors are also suffering from the intense competition
from China, India and Bangladesh. We at PCFA, feel these are the real growth sectors of our export and we must continue to support them
so that they can multiply our export earnings and even more importantly, provide critical jobs in Pakistan.
