CNG FUEL OF THE DAY
 
 
ISSUE # 50-----Dec 12 - Dec 18, 2005

Out of the total vehicular population which is roughly estimated around 2.5 million, over one million vehicles have switched over from oil to CNG till to-date while the remaining ones are also in the pipeline in Pakistan.
This indicates the gigantic growth in CNG consumption making it as the third largest consumer of natural gas around the world.
In fact, the CNG has assumed a role of economic savior otherwise the ever increasing oil prices would have washed off all the economic gains the country has achieved so far.


  REGIONAL TEXTILE SCENARIO

Removal of safeguards on the exports of Chinese textile products to different countries would land the Indian exports of textile and clothing in deep trouble.
The Indian exports of textile and clothing would continue to flourish as long as safeguards on Chinese products remain intact.
According to a working paper titled "The Impact on India of Trade Liberalisation in the Textiles & Clothing Sector" prepared by IMF staffers Prasad Ananthakrishnan and Sonali Jain-Chandra.
Some major textile importing countries have imposed restrictions on the imports of textile and clothing and India appears major beneficiary of this development.
