Pakistani booths showcased local products and attracted a great deal of visitors from China as well as ASEAN member states at 18th China-ASEAN Expo(CAEXPO) opened in Guangxi, China. Those Pakistani exhibitors are very confident about their products, and they are also very optimistic about the ASEAN and Chinese markets.
A Pakistani textile trader tell us that nowadays handmade stuff is really rare, thus Chinese people prefer that. It's a huge market as people have a good living standard, so they can afford any kind of product which is handmade and of high quality.
“the quality of Pakistani rice is really hard to duplicate in other countries.”said the Pakistani basmati rice trader. He started outputting basmati rice to China a year ago and it immediately drew attraction of Chinese customers. He believes it will also be welcome in ASEAN countries.
