Eyeing to boost its garment and other textile items exports, the Government of Pakistan is exploring the prospects of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with various countries.

The Commerce Ministry has informed the Senate that efforts to explore the feasibility of FTAs with Singapore, Brunei and Indonesia are already on.

The Senate was informed that several exhibitions including those for readymade garments and textiles are being held at national and international level in order to promote Pakistani goods and to earn a better market access by seeking meaningful participation of domestic as well as international buyers.

It was revealed that the Textile Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) participated in 11 international textile and textile related items' trade fairs till September this year, and proposes to partake in 12 more such events in the coming months.

Through the year till September 2011, TDAP organized six trade fairs for Pakistani trade delegations in Malaysia, China, Indonesia and Tajikistan.

The Ministry added that Pakistan's relations with India have improved and the latter has pledged its support to Pakistan's efforts to gain greater access to the EU market.
