At a press conference to announce the event, PRGMEA chairman Arshad Aziz informed that Pakistani exhibitors who participated during the 1st edition of the five-day event, managed to generate business worth Pk Rs. 400 million.
Mr. Aziz said the 2nd edition would help Pakistani textile and garment manufacturers to introduce high-quality made-in-Pakistan products, infused with rich Pakistani culture, to the Indian business community and at the same time provide the exhibitors an opportunity to interact with Indian leaders in the textile and apparel sector and discuss trade relations with them.
One of the highlights of the 2nd edition of the expo would include several business-to-business meetings of Pakistani exhibitors with their Indian counterparts so that they could discuss possibilities of entering into joint ventures, he added.
