Apparel and textile exporters from Pakistan expect to generate US$ 100 million export orders from Indian buyers during the ‘Made in Pakistan Expo 2014’ scheduled to be held from April 3 to 7, in the Indian city of Mumbai, said Pakistan Readymade Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA) chairman Arshad Aziz.
 
Addressing a press conference, Mr. Aziz said that PRGMEA has received an overwhelming response from exhibitors and around 45 percent stalls have already been booked and Pakistani exporters may fetch at least $ 100 million worth of export orders from the country.
 
Pakistani garments, especially womenswear, are in great demand in India, and the business contacts established during the expo would improve bilateral trade relations between the two countries, giving a boost to Pakistan’s value-added textile sector, he added.
 
Mr. Aziz explained that during the five-day expo, PRGMEA would also be hosting business-to-client (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) meetings between Pakistani apparel and textile exporters as well as manufacturers and Indian buyers, in order to provide Pakistani exporters the opportunity to interact and create business contacts and avail maximum benefit from the event.
 
Organized by PRGMEA with the support of the Federal Ministry of Commerce of Pakistan, the expo would have 120 stalls displaying various made-in-Pakistan products including readymade garments such as casual wear, menswear, womenswear and kidswear, as well as yarn, fabrics, home textiles, handicrafts and more.
