International Textile Fair Begins In Dubai

The second edition of the two-day International Textile Fair-Dubai (ITF) kicked off at the Dubai World Trade Centre on October 11 creating a congenial atmosphere that inspired both exhibitors and visitors there.

Ahmed Abdul Salam Kazim, director of strategy & corporate excellence at Dubai Customs, said that importance of 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.

Kazim said that 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 ITF includes 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.
