Following the success of its first edition which concluded last month, the Pakistan Readymade Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA) is all geared up to host the second edition of the ‘Made in Pakistan Expo 2014’, scheduled to be held from August 31 to September 5, 2014, once again in the Indian city of Mumbai.
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.
Organized by PRGMEA, with the support of the event management firm EVECON, as well as the Pakistani Ministry of Commerce and Textile Industry, the six-day event would be held under the theme ‘Festival of Friendship’ and would have more than 100 Pakistani textile and apparel firms showcasing their latest products to Indian buyers.
Exhibitors at the event would be showcasing various products, including readymade garments such as casual wear, menswear, womenswear and kidswear, as well as yarn, fabrics, home textiles and more.
