LA­HORE: Pak­istani High Com­mis­sioner to South Africa Zaigham Ud­ddin Azam has said that the fu­ture of Pak­istan's trade lies in Africa in gen­eral and South Africa in par­tic­u­lar.

This was stated by him while speak­ing at the first Pak­istan fashion and cul­tural show ar­ranged by M/S Alyzeh Cou­ture, a lead­ing fashion de­signer from Pak­istan in col­lab­o­ra­tion with High Com­mis­sion of Pak­istan, Pre­to­ria in Jo­han­nes­burg South Africa.

The fashion and cul­tural show was at­tended by a large num­ber of peo­ple from diplo­matic com­mu­nity, South African peo­ple from dif­fer­ent eth­nic back­grounds and lo­cal ex­pa­tri­ate Mus­lims. H.E. Madam Dr. Feroza Man­soor, wife of Eco­nomic Af­fairs Min­is­ter Mr. Ebrahim Pa­tel was chief guest whereas Mr Cllr Khorombi Dau, MMC for Sports, Recre­ation, Arts and Cul­ture was the guest of honor.

The fashion show not only de­picted the cul­tural di­ver­sity of Pak­istan but also pro­jected Pak­istani fab­ric and Pak­istani tex­tile prod­ucts. The ob­jec­tive of the fashion show was to project the cul­ture of Pak­istan in its cor­rect per­spec­tive and to ex­plore the com­mon­al­i­ties which can lead to syn­ergy be­tween lo­cal and Pak­istani cul­ture.

An at­tempt was made by the High Com­mis­sion to dis­play Pak­istani prod­ucts and Pak­istani cul­ture not only to in­tro­duce the rich­ness of Pak­istani cul­ture but also to ex­plore the niche mar­ket for Pak­istani tex­tile prod­ucts.
