ACIMIT will help Pakistan garment manufacturers association and its member companies in decisions such as adoption of right technology and source for best textile machinery and accessories, he added. Similarly, Italian companies arriving in Pakistan will also gain support from PRGMEA and APTMA which will include visa assistance, factory visits and B2B meetings among others. (RR)
