The purpose of this research report is to identify and analyze the WTO-related issues for Pakistan at present in the area of textile sector of the economy. The report focuses on the challenges faced by the country in implementing its WTO commitments and the challenges posed by the implementation of the agreements with its major trading partners. Apart from suggesting on how to cope with the internal challenges, the report also takes into account on what kind of strategy and course of action Pakistan should adopt, along with other South Asian countries, in the future multilateral negotiations, to deal with the external challenges posed by a WTO environment. The theme of report is how to grow textile sector as it is contributing 35% to 42% of whole exports of countries.

The Convenience Sampling method of Non-probability technique was used because it provided ease to me gather data form nearby locations in a short period of time. Sample includes 9 respondents from different textile mills executives in Lahore. Data is collected through effective questionnaire by e-mail survey and personal interview. Following are the important facts found during the research study. The respondents of my research consist of 78% male and 22% female executives. So majority of the sample consist of male respondents. Average ages of the respondents fall into 35 - 44 categories. Majority of them are post graduates, position at middle level management and have average experience between 10-19 years.

Almost 90% respondents are in favor of those hypotheses which I have developed for research. Majority of them criticize the Govt. active bodies’ poor role in textile sector development. They also criticized Govt. due to inefficiency on coping current energy crisis which are causing to destroy the industry.

Research also indicates that Pakistan’s neighbor countries are enhancing and capturing its markets which are supposed to be loyal from Pakistan’s point of view for many years.
