Ir­fan Kaiser Sheikh, Pres­i­dent, Lahore Cham­ber of Com­merce, in­au­gu­rated the 10th edi­tion of the In­ter­na­tional Ma­chin­ery Ex­hi­bi­tion of Gar­ment and Tex­tile Tech­nol­ogy – MEGATECH Pak­istan2012, at the Lahore Expo Cen­tre.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Ir­fan Kaiser Sheikh said that Megatech Pak­istan is the most com­pre­hen­sive rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the em­broi­dery sec­tor in the tex­tile in­dus­try for value-added ex­ports. He ap­pre­ci­ated the ef­forts and en­cour­aged hold­ing of such mega events in fu­ture.he said that Pak­istan needs to sup­port lo­cal skilled labour and lat­est tech­nol­ogy in or­der to at­tain a lead­ing role in the in­ter­na­tional tex­tile sce­nario. He also said that events like Megatech Pak­istan pro­vide in­ter­ac­tive net­work­ing plat­forms for the growth of busi­nesses in Pak­istan.

Arif Man­soor Khousa un­veiled his ex­pan­sion plans for Expo Cen­tre Lahore, which in­cludes sta­teof-the-art busi­ness fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing a ho­tel and shop­ping cen­tre at the ex­hi­bi­tion venue.

The sec­ond day of MEGATECH Pak­istan 2012 wit­nessed an over­whelm­ing num­ber of trade vis­i­tors from var­i­ous cities such as Faisal­abad, Karachi, Mul­tan, Gu­jran­wala, Bahawalpur, Sahi­wal, Sialkot, and Rawalpindi. Key tex­tile in­dus­tri­al­ists as well as diplo­matic rep­re­sen­ta­tives also at­tended the show. They ap­pre­ci­ated the ef­forts of the or­ga­niz­ers in putting up such an ex­ten­sive ex­hi­bi­tion of the lat­est tex­tile ma­chin­ery which is nec­es­sary to boost the cur­rent slump in the tex­tile mar­ket.

Many no­table tex­tile in­dus­tri­al­ists took keen in­ter­est in the lat­est trend of en­er­gy­ef­fi­cient so­lu­tions and ma­chin­ery with longer life. Ac­cord­ing to one in­dus­tri­al­ist, tech­nol­ogy is an im­por­tant as­pect for ad­vance­ment as it helps in in­creas­ing ex­port vol­ume of tex­tiles from Pak­istan. A few ex­hibit­ing com­pa­nies also demon­strated ma­chin­ery pow­ered by so­lar en­ergy as a step for­ward in green en­ergy for the tex­tile in­dus­try.

The In­ter­na­tional Ma­chin­ery Ex­hi­bi­tion of Gar­ment and Tex­tile Tech­nol­ogy, MEGATECH Pak­istan 2012, con­cluded on a pos­i­tive note and re­ceived an over­whelm­ing re­sponse from the par­tic­i­pants.

Com­pa­nies from China, Aus­tria, Korea, Bel­gium, Malaysia, Ger­many, Italy, Ja­pan, USA, and UK also demon­strated their equip­ment which also in­cluded ma­chin­ery pow­ered by so­lar en­ergy to meet the cur­rent en­ergy cri­sis. “This is a step for­ward in green en­ergy for the tex­tile in­dus­try,” said a cus­tomer. Ma­chin­ery worth more than a mil­lion dol­lars was sold at the ex­hi­bi­tion. Most ex­hibitors expressed their sat­is­fac­tion over the out­come of the ex­hi­bi­tion and have booked space for next year due to an over­whelm­ing re­sponse from lo­cal in­dus­try buy­ers.
