Heimtextil 2019

Pakistan presence at Heimtextil

Pakistan’s dominant presence at Heimtextil 2019 proved to be a monumental step towards tapping global textile markets and influencing international buyers with products that adhere to the finest quality standards.

About 222 Pakistani companies were present during the fair and the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan has also set up a pavilion at the fair to showcase Pakistan’s products. More than 800 traders and visitors from Pakistan were present at the exhibition as well as students from Pakistani arts and textile institutes.

Pakistan is the fourth largest participating country in the event. The exhibitors were hopeful that 2019 would be a positive year for the country’s exports and the national economy, especially the textile industry, following the announcement of concessions and supportive policies by the government. Owing to the European Union’s GSP Plus facility for Pakistan, the importance of this exhibition has increased further.

According to Gul Ahmed Textile Mills Chairman, Bashir Ali Muhammad, a very positive response was received right from the very start of the exhibition as a large number of international buyers expressed interest in Pakistani products.
