TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE ASSOCIATION
Excellent Opportunity to Expand Business in USA
The PHMA has established Sales cum Display Center (PHMAUSA) in the prime location of garment district in Manhattan New York USA. The area is hub of Textiles and Fashion related activities and offers tremendous opportunities for enhancing exports, increasing market share and exports of Value added products besides helping to restore confidence among the importers who are reluctant to visit Pakistan because of deteriorating law & order situation.
Due to the changing market trends and concerns over social / environmental issues in countries such as China etc., therefore the importers are looking for alternate supply sources and Pakistan can benefit and fill this gap.
The Board of Director of Pakistan Hosiery & Textiles Manufacturers Inc USA, by virtue of meeting of Managing Director, Mr. Junaid Makda with D.G TDAP and Commercial Counselor, Pakistan Consulate in New York held in PHMA New York Office, have decided that for the sustainability and boosting of all textile exports, facilities shall also be offered to all Value Added Textile Exporters intending to expand their business in USA at an Annual Membership Fee as decided by the Board.
