Mauritius has invited Pakistani textile exporters to explore business opportunities in addition to arranging a fashion show of Pakistani brands in the country. Mauritius President Ameenah Firdaus Guarib-Fakin extended the invitation during a meeting with the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) recently.
Fakin said there were huge opportunities on the technical side of the textile sector in Mauritius – a small island nation located on the east of mainland Africa and often termed ‘the gateway to Africa’ – that remained unexplored. Moreover, the President said, Pakistani entrepreneurs could also take advantage of Mauritius to penetrate the United States (US) and European markets. According to APTMA Chairman Tariq Saud, there was a need of close liaison between the business communities of the two countries and invited Mauritian entrepreneurs to enter into joint ventures with Pakistani textile mills.
