Trade Development Authority Chief Executive Tariq Iqbal Puri has expressed the hope that the upcoming Lifestyle Pakistan exhibition in New Delhi will help Pakistan’s textile designers and industrialists make a mark in the huge Indian market and also improve the country’s image in the world.
Following the Lifestyle Exhibition, to be held from April 12-15, a show of Pakistani culture and products will be organised in Mumbai, he announced. But before that, an exhibition of Indian products will be held in Karachi.
Puri said 70% of products to be displayed had reached India through Wagah border while exhibitors will start leaving on April 9. In the exhibition, Pakistan’s top designers, textile companies, leather product manufacturers, footwear, jewellery, furniture and handicraft makers will showcase their products.
