The 16th Textile Asia International Exhibition organized by the Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers & Exporters Association (PRGMEA) was inaugurated by Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Pervaiz Rasheed.

The PRGMEA in collaboration with Ecommerce Gateway Pakistan is organising this mega textile exhibition second time in Lahore, where more than 35,000 trade and corporate visitors are expected to visit during three days.

PRGMEA chief coordinator Ijaz Khokhar said that the three-day mega event is going to provide the textile industry a best opportunity where more than 315 international brands from around 27 countries are displaying their products in more than 515 stalls.

This year over 50,000 people are expected to visit the exhibition including 550 foreign delegates from trade and corporate sector will also mark the event.

The event will provide an effective platform for collaborations to the textile sector’s SMEs, majority of which are located in Punjab, having no financial capacity to attend international exhibitions.

Since the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has opened up a world of opportunities for both Pakistan and China, the focus is on linking Chinese small manufacturing enterprises (SMEs) to Pakistani SMEs.

PRGMEA senior vice chairman Sohail A Sheikh observed that the local textile sector’s whole chain has also been invited to attend this country’s largest textile show.

The exhibiting countries include Austria, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Italy, Korea, Taiwan, Turkey, UK and USA. The Management of Apparel has also been invited to participate in the fair.

Ecommerce Gateway Pakistan president Dr Khursheed Nizam said that the international Textile & Garment Machinery Show is the only UFI (Paris) approved event of the industry in South Asia, which provides enormous opportunities of learning, information sharing, mutual cooperation and combined projects to all the stakeholders in the most apt sector of Textile in Asia.

The International Textile Asia Trade Show is one of the most and enduring events to be held for the last 15th successive years. Textile Asia International Exhibition will run from August 27 to 29 at Lahore Expo Centre .
