ISLAMABAD: Revenue Minister Haroon Akhtar Khan has said that the government will introduce new measures in the upcoming budget to boost textile exports.

Speaking to a delegation of All Pakistan Textile Mills Association, Haroon said if we have to grow at 7pc, we will have to enhance our manufacturing base.
