Colombiatex projects a good image of textile industry
Feb '08
Among other facts, the 8,352 national visitors and buyers, as well as the 1,630 international buyers from more than 30 countries speak about the historic record with which the 20th Colombiatex from the Americas convention ended.

In a press conference to which the mayor of Medellín, Alonso Salazar Jaramillo; Industry, Commerce and Tourism deputy minister, Eduardo Muñoz Gómez; Proexport Colombia chairperson, María Elvira Pombo; Inexmoda's international commerce manager, Clara Echeverri and Inexmoda's marketing manager, Andrés Restrepo were invited.

Inexmoda's executive director, Roque Ospina Duque, preceded the closure of the 20th edition of Colombiatex from the Americas presenting the outcome balance with a mid-day break of its third and last day, and followed with these words:

"It is very satisfactory for us to present the positive outcome balance of the last 20 years of operation of this convention, through which we have managed to refine many details and to place Colombiatex as a dynamic, sales profitable and welcoming convention.

Colombiatex projects a good image not only of our textile-garment production-distribution and related industry, but of our city Medellín, Antioquia and the whole country.

I would like to take advantage of this opportunity to thank the national and international media for the coverage performed to this convention and for sharing the results registered in this edition of Colombiatex of the Americas.
