Handicrafts trade fair reduces border trade tangle with Pakistan

26
Jun '09
The recently organized Northern India International Trade Fair 2009 was an opportunity for several people in Ludhiana to appreciate the artifacts of Pakistan, which were displayed in the fair.

This trade fair was an initiative to enhance the relations between India and Pakistan. About 36 members of the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry showcased their products in this week-long trade fair.

The fair displayed pure embroidered cotton suits, handloom and the world-renowned traditional 'Kasuri Jutti', the well-known embroidery of Multan was the best part of the fair.

Almost all sorts of embroidered patterns such as handwork, threadwork, Kota work and Kamdani had been brought from the region to the fair, informed one of the exhibitors. Most of the Pakistani exporters of embroidered cloths already enjoy a good client base in India.

The success of this Indo-Pak trade fair will prove to be a stimulus for the cross-border trade between two countries, particularly in the context of a recent study, which indicated a downturn trend.

According to the survey conducted by Federation of Indian Chambers of Industry and Commerce (FICCI), the trade between two neighbors will probably experience a 60 percent decline in the current fiscal as a result of deteriorating Indo-Pak relations after terror attacks in India.

The key sectors in Indo-Pak bilateral trade encompass textiles, cotton, chemicals, and agricultural products.

Such fairs definitely work as a bridge between two countries and government should consider such ways as the best way to lessen the differences between the neighboring countries, said one of the fair visitors.
