STAFF REPORT FAD: Faisalabad, the leading city in terms of textile industry of Pakistan, is facing two major problems – lack of energy which is badly affecting the productivity of the city and the second is non-observance of zoning regulations that has implied the segregation between areas occupied by residences and industry has diminished.. Several communities are complaining of the hazardous industrial waste, while the industry representatives feel that it is the sprawl that has resulted in residential areas being so near to the industry. According to claims from industry, it has lost 40 per cent of their pre-2008 production and claims that recurrent losses have increased significantly. Many SMEs are now operating at a break-even.

Similarly, environment has emerged as another major problem as majority of the industry does not have any binding in this regard. Industry seems least willing to protect the environment.
