Containers Caught In 
Port Delays in Pakistan
Over 250 export-bound garment containers are stuck at Pakistan's Karachi International Container Terminal (KICT) after problems with security scanning facilities led to a backlog.
Karachi is Pakistan's only operational seaport and handles more than 90% of the country's import and export activities, in addition to Afghanistan bound NATO supplies where security scanning is a major issue.
The delays have caused a slowdown in the outward movement of garment shipments from Pakistan to the US and EU.
Many consignments are also stranded in various cities across the country, due to the shortage of containers and transport facilities linked to the port backlog.
Arshad Jamal, senior vice president of the All Pakistan Customs Agents Association (APCAA), blamed authorities for causing unnecessary delays in container clearance over the past year - which has put a financial burden on exporters.

    12,000 Workers in 
     Turkey Strike
Some 12,000 workers in Turkey's clothing and textile manufacturing sector have gone on strike over wages.
The strike covers around 30 major textile and clothing producers including Altinyildiz, Bahariye Mensucat, Vakko, Akin Tekstil, Kordsa, Karsu, Levi-Strauss, Isbir, Söktas, Orta Anadolu and Yünsa ve Saray Hali.
Unions Teksif, Oz Iplik-Is and Tekstil, which represent textile, clothing and apparel workers, have taken the strike action due to the the "intransigent attitudes" of the employers' organization on wage and wage related matters.
"We began to negotiate with very good-will decent wages for our members, however because this process has been put by the employers in a way not leading to the solution, we have arrived at a point of end of the words," Texif president Nazmi Irgat told the 
IndustriAll Global Union.
Average gross salary of Teksif members is reported to be around TRY1,165 (US603.1) per month, and 55% of workers in the sector earn the legal minimum wage (TRY978.60).
IndustriAll added that textile workers live beneath the poverty line and because of low wages and social payments qualified workers are leaving the sector, with the turnover rate in the sector at 37%.
The disagreement centers around employers wanting to keep special wage arrangements that were agreed to survive the period of crisis. Teksif is demanding bonuses return to the previous level of 120-day salary instead of the current 72, while the employers' last offer was based on 90-days salary.
Employers have offered a 3% salary increase, while Teksif's latest demand was for a 15% rise.
Commenting on the strike, IndustriAll general secretary Jyrki Raina said: "Turkey is one of the most important and strategic countries for global textile and garment sectors. This is why success of Teksif in this strike is vital, not just for Turkish workers, but also for the rest of the world.
"IndustriAll Global Union will continue to give its full support to the striking Turkish textile workers."


US Gradually Lifts 
   Sanctions on Burma
The US is continuing to relax curbs on trade with Burma, with an executive order signed August 8, by President Barack Obama confirming its support for a gradual lifting of sanctions.
The latest executive order cancels an earlier ban on imports from Burma (also known as Myanmar) under the Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act, which expired on July 28 - but continues to bar imports of rubies and jade from the country.
"The removal of the broad ban on imports of articles other than jadeite and rubies...represents the next step in the administration's continued efforts to promote responsible trade and investment in support of Burma's reform process," deputy 
national security adviser Ben Rhodes said in a statement.
The Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act (BFDA) is renewed annually, although the US has gradually been easing restrictions in response to reforms by the country's military regime and steps to improve human rights.
A ban on investment and financial transactions in Burma was waived last July, and in November the US authorized Burmese-origin goods to enter the country for the first time in almost a decade.
While bilateral trade is increasing, it still remains small, with total US imports from Burma standing at just $1m in the first three months of 2013.
However, before the import ban was imposed in 2003, garments made up the country's largest exports to the US.
Earlier this year the European Union (EU) also lifted the last of its trade and economic sanctions against Burma in response to what it describes as "the remarkable process of reform" that has taken place in the country over the past two years.

Pakistan to Tackle Textile 
    Energy Supply Crisis
Utility companies in Pakistan have come up with what they believe is a solution to the energy supply problems hurting Pakistan's textile industry, with a combination of electricity and gas ensuring continuous power.
According to the new hourly-based arrangement, the state-owned Electricity Supply Company will provide power to textile plants for 14 hours a day, with factories producing their own power from gas for the remaining 10 hours.
The facility has been extended to the textile clusters at Multan, Lahore, Faisalabad, and Shiekhupura, confirmed gas company sources.
Pakistan's textile industry has been hit hard by the energy shortages, with power cuts of 8-10 hours a day and gas supply suspensions for five days-a-week.
The new measures will boost textile exports by at least US$3bn during the current fiscal year, claimed Shahzad Ali Khan, chairman of the Punjab section of the All Pakistan Textile Mills 
Association (APTMA).
The arrangement will help revive capacities idled by energy shortages and increase textile production and export by at least 30%, hopes Asghar Ali, Chairman of the Pakistan Textile Exporters Association (PTEA).
