Pakistan can increase textile exports to Japan: JICA
Oct '15
Pakistan can improve its textile exports to Japan, the visiting representatives of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) have said, as per Pakistani media reports.

To enable Pakistani textile manufacturers to increase their exports, a new programme will begin from February next year, and a website of JICA and Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) which has been launched will provide details about Japanese markets to exporters, Hideaki Shimizu, JICA’s advisor to TDAP said in his address to members of Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FCCI).

Shimizu emphasised on exporters enhancing the standard of products for the quality conscious Japanese consumers. He said that both the countries must have a free trade agreement (FTA) and exporters in Pakistan must pressurise the government for it.

Jameel Ahmed, vice president FCCI, stated that there was an urgent requirement for signing memorandum of understanding with prominent Japanese chambers and expressed need for exchanging bilateral trade delegations.

In reference to the Pakistan Japan Textile Day, a one-day textile event organised by JICA and TDAP earlier this week, Shimzu said many Japanese buyers attended the textile event and they had productive meetings with domestic exporters.

At the event, senior expert of Japan Textile Importers Association Yasuhiro Shoda pointed out that Pakistan needed to work on its process design with better production management methods and stressed on improving the quality of its textile products for the Japanese consumers.

TDAP director general Shahzad Hussain Rana said that Pakistan had a strong export-based textile industry and it is the right time for taking positive actions in order to penetrate into Japanese markets.

Last year too, TDAP and JICA had organised a one-day workshop with the objective of creating awareness among Pakistani exporters regarding the market requirements in Japan, as well as promoting exports of ‘Made-in-Pakistan’ products to the country. (HO)
