The Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA) has been able to garner huge response from Pakistani exhibitors with about 70 per cent stalls already booked for the 2nd edition of the ‘Made In Pakistan Expo 2014’ to be held in Mumbai from August 31 to September 5, 2014. The inaugural edition of MIPEM 2014 held from April 3 to 7, 2014 at Mumbai had also witnessed positive response.
The exhibition provides a platform to Pakistan-based companies to showcase their range of products and services to the Indian public and business community. The exhibition also contributes in promoting Pakistan-India economic relations by diversifying the existing trade patterns, thus introducing a wide range of quality Pakistani products in the Indian market.
Organisers expect to fetch in over Rs 3,600 crores worth export orders as compared to over Rs 2,400 crores received from the first edition. Pakistani fashion, lawn suits and garments are seeing great demand among the Indian women. PRGMEA has also arranged B2C and B2B meetings between the Pakistani exhibitors and manufacturers with Indian buyers and trade delegation would also visit India in the sidelines so that Pakistan exhibitors could avail maximum benefit from the event. Besides readymade garments, fashion clothing, and home textiles, handicrafts, marble items, food items and other goods would also be on display.
