The Syrian textile sector is hoping that the Syria MOTEX fair from April 13 to April 15, 2014, helps it get back on its feet. Syria MOTEX has been organized by Syrian Exporters Association in cooperation with Exports Development and Promotion Agency and the Syrian Exporters Union. The aim is to promote Syrian textiles. Syria specializes in clothing and fashion.
More than 100 Syrian textile, fabric and clothing companies are taking part in the fair. The products being showcased include children’s wear, underwear, covers, luggage and hosiery. Around 400 businessmen from Iraq, Jordan, Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, UAE and Kuwait are at the fair with the intention of signing purchase contracts.
One indication that the Syrian textile segment is recovering is that the fair witnessed an increase in the number of exhibitors and visitors from earlier editions. The Syrian government has been providing considerable support to its textile industry to overcome stumbling blocks.
MOTEX is the Syrian fashion and textiles expo. The expo aims to allow Syrian producers of clothing and textiles to meet Arab and foreign visitors in order to expand the markets targeted by Syrian products. It seeks to find marketing outlets for Syrian textile products, locally and abroad.
