Exports of Indian MMF textiles have witnessed decline in major markets like Egypt and Pakistan. The main reasons for decline in our exports to Egypt may be due to the political crisis that occurred and continued in Egypt during 2012-13 and consequent adverse impact on trade and business.  Exports to Pakistan have also been affected due to continued political and civil crisis in Pakistan. Moreover, unresolved trade issues/relations between Indian and Pakistan have adversely impacted exports from India.
