Export of textile sector of Pakistan is also dependent on the trade policy of importing countries, particularly
European Union and USA, as these countries have been major importer of textile goods of Pakistan. This study is
unique in the way that it contributes in existing literature by estimating factor productivity growth of textile sector in
the perspective of pre quota and post quota elimination situation, as this has been ignored in past. We explored that
textile sector of Pakistan did not get benefit of quota elimination and productivity remained almost stagnant over the
period. We suggest penetrating textile export in unrestricted markets apart from European Union and USA and
closure of sick units and outdated technology
