Symposium ‘German technology meets Pakistani textile industry’
A business development trip was organized for a delegation of German companies as part of a project from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in November 2019. These highly innovative and technologically-advanced German companies specialized in production technologies along the entire textile value chain from spinning, knitting, weaving, nonwovens and finishing sought Pakistani business partners, partners of cooperation and wanted to present their companies and products to a Pakistani audience, all under the brand “Made in Germany”.
Fourteen selected highly innovative and technologically-advanced German companies specialized in production technologies along the entire textile value chain visited for a 5 day trip to Karachi and Lahore to establish a Pakistani-German business dialogue.
Five days of conferences, individual business meetings and institutional and technical visits in Pakistan were a unique opportunity for Pakistani companies and institutions to meet the delegation in order to foster bilateral cooperation and exchange views on innovations, technologies and business opportunities.
The days in Karachi and Lahore were dedicated to personalized business-meetings as well as technical, informational and company visits in and around the cities.
Through these networking sessions, the Pakistani participating companies were able to get to know world-class German companies, products, technologies, and services.
Personalized business and technical informational visits to manufacturing plants and associations also provided a better understanding of the needs and desired technical solutions to German machinery suppliers and their Pakistani hosts.
