LAHORE: Pakistan Carpet Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PCMEA) is holding Pakistan Hand-Knotted Carpet Exhibition, its annual four-day mega show, from October 22 to 25 (Tuesday-Friday), a statement said.
The hand-knotted carpet show will be inaugurated by Mian Mujtaba Shuja-ur-Rehman, Punjab minister for finance, it said.
PCMEA newly-elected Central Chairman Akhtar Nazir Khan Cooki said that the carpet show will be the largest event of Pakistan’s handmade carpets. The event will be visited by a large number of buyers from across the world, while over 50 national manufacturers will display their products in the exhibition, the statement said.
PCMEA will focus more on ensuring maximum participation of local new home owners, interior designers, architects and people in order to create awareness about the carpets as pieces of art created by local artisans. He said that delegates from across the world have been invited and it is expected that over 100 foreign companies will visit the carpet show.
PCMEA Vice Chairman Kamran Razi urged the government should regularly organise such events that will not only increase the exports of Pakistani products but would also boost the declining tourism sector.
The vice chairman said that China, Germany and Dubai are excellent examples of well-organised international trade fairs, where businessmen from across the world converge to enhance mutual trade.
