LAHORE, Pakistan — Pakistan’s textile and apparel sector has continued a run of strong sales, according to government reports, with knitwear, ready-to-wear, silk and synthetic fabrics showing key gains.

Despite a 4 million bale shortfall the country faced at the beginning of the season due to the loss of cotton crops from last summer’s flooding, importers stuck by mills and even increased their orders. According to the Federal Bureau of Statistics, textile exports increased 51 percent to $1.2 billion for the year through February. Knitwear was up 8 percent to 9.5 million dozen, ready-to-wear gained 10 percent to 2.8 million dozen, and silk and synthetic textiles doubled to 48.3 million square meter equivalents.
