PRGMEA was represented by its chief co-ordinator Ijaz Khokhar while CCCT was represented by its Chairman Jiang Hui.
Khokhar made a presentation on Pakistan's textile and apparel sector at the forum, which was attended by major apparel associations and many leading Chinese garment companies.
He said that although China is not a traditional market for Pakistan, it can offer a lot of opportunities for Pakistani merchandise. The MoU between the PRGMEA and CCCT would go a long way and help Pakistani value-added garments goods to find their way in the Chinese market, he added.
Khokhar said that ample opportunities existed in value-added textile sector of Pakistan and now it was the duty of the policymakers to help the garment industry make this MoU meaningful.
As per the MoU, PRGMEA will provide visa assistance to Chinese companies through invitation letters.
A CCCT delegation will visit Pakistan to attend Texpo from April 7 to 10. PRGMEA will arrange for the Chinese delegation factory visits and B2B meetings with its members. PRGMEA has also planned a trade delegation to visit China by the end of this year. It is expected that Chinese companies will establish their units at CPEC Economic zones through joint ventures of the local companies, with PRGMEA playing a leading role after striking this deal with CCCT.
