Since I have been studying at TIP, I have seen a clear distance between designers and the other students of our university, no matter what their gender is or which department they belong to. The designers think that they are very creative people and therefore they should be given more importance than others. One of the designers said, “We are really busy people, we don’t have enough time to waste on you cheap guys.” However, really I could not understand, what do they mean by CHEAP guys? We do what usually other guys in this world do, so whats wrong in that? If all of us are a part of this university then why do they think that they are superior to us? Could anyone of you please tell me?
On Friday (Sept 26), a glimpse of confidence could be seen in the students of Textile Institute of Pakistan. Around 20 students were in the Lecture Room 2 to give the audition for the inter-university debate competetion, to be held in TIP on 25th October 2003. English teachers Mr. B.D. Saleem and Miss Sabeen Ahmed were acting as jury for those auditions. Everyone was trying to take lead over others, specially the new comers. They were looking quite enthusiastic and really have the ability to prove that they can do somthing for TIP.
If anyone missed the auditions and wants to participate, contact Mr. B.D Saleem.
bq.. KARACHI, Sept 13: With about 10 million bales of cotton production, but with hardly 3 per cent share in annual world textile export trade of $157.5 billion and only 1.1 per cent in $199 billion world clothing export , Pakistan prepares for entering a new era of textile and clothing business after 15 months when Multi Fibre Arrangement (MFA) comes to final end in January 2005.
From January 2005 onwards, the textile business will be governed under Agreement on Textiles and Clothing (ATC) signed under the auspices of World Trade Organization. Textile Monitoring Board (TMB) is now monitoring the implementation of new rules of the trade that offers both challenges and opportunities to countries like Pakistan.
The challenges are unpredictable and volatile exchange control, vagaries of weather and unforeseen events that could knock out all projections and affect textile trade. Growing regional trade blocs may lead to de-localisation and impact textile business.
