The carpet business had “reached rock bottom because of many trade-related issues,” said Riaz Ahmed, Chairman of Pakistan’s Carpet Manufacturers & Exporters Association.
According to Ahmed, women make up 70% of the workforce in the handmade carpet industry. Pakistan is a significant market for the production of handmade carpets in the area. Chinese investors are attracted by its low labour expenses. Ahmed said.
Pakistan’s exports of handmade carpets fell from $300 million to $68 million in 2015 as a result of escalating shipping costs, tax duties, customs clearance costs, and warehouse costs. Many of women who were employed as daily wagers as a result lost their jobs.
But now, 313 export goods will have duty-free access to China’s $2 trillion import market thanks to the inclusion of handmade carpets in the China-Pakistan Free Trade Agreement.
