A Pakistani exhibitor and senior vice president of All Pakistan Bedsheet & Upholstery Manufacturers Association Imran Mehmood said that the fair remains important from various perspectives, including reviving the countryâ€™s textile exports, which remain the single largest earner of foreign exchange despite recent setbacks.
Secondly, the country is allowed to make textile exports at concessional import duties to the European Union under the GSP Plus scheme provided by the 27-national bloc. To take advantage from it, they must understand the emerging market dynamics which is possible at Heimtextil, Mehmood said.
