Pakistani men’s garment exports to China showed a significant growth of 29% in the first quarter of 2023.
“This growth can be attributed to Pakistan’s strong manufacturing capability and high quality of its garments,” said Ghulam Qadir, Commercial Counsellor of Pakistan Embassy in Beijing, on Tuesday.
“In the first three months of 2023, men’s garment exports from Pakistan to China reached approximately $6 million compared to $4.27 million in the same period in 2022, representing a 29% increase.”
Exports of men’s or
boys’ trousers fetched $3.47 million as compared to $1.67 million in January-March 2022.
Qadir shared that Pakistan was preparing to host the largest textile exhibition in the current month, China Economic Net (CEN) reported.
Over 70 top fabric enterprises have already confirmed their participation and it is anticipated that more than 100 Chinese textile enterprises will also take part in the event.
The exhibition is scheduled to be held from May 26 to 28 at the Karachi Expo Centre.
