(Dubai) – The textile industry will be making headlines as the second edition of the two-day International Textile Fair-Dubai (ITF) kicks off at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Ahmed Abdul Salam Kazim, Director of Strategy & Corporate Excellence at Dubai Customs, said much of the importance the ITF gains is credited to Dubai’s global status as a prominent hub for textile and apparel trade in the Middle East, Africa and nearby markets. A wide range of brands and products that meet all tastes and needs is made available at competitive prices, thanks to a 24/7 network of aviation lines connecting Dubai to the world.
Kazim added, “Dubai textile trade in the first half of 2015 hit AED 7.5 billion, with AED 4.8 billion in imports, AED 2.2 billion in re-exports and AED 508 million in exports.”
The Director of Client Management at Dubai Customs, Edris Behzad, stated, “Dubai Customs strives to enhance ties with textile traders. To that end, the International Textile Fair- Dubai is the place to be, as it attracts 200 exhibitors, mainly from Europe, India, Japan, Korea, Turkey and various traders from the local market.”
“The ITF will include a stand to introduce both exhibitors and visitors to the services offered by Dubai Customs to various business sectors and the regular sector-specific initiatives it tailors,” Behzad added.
