Pakistani traders are now ready to try their hand in the other parts of the country too, several traders said.
"We sold most of our items at PITEX, and have understood the choice of the visitors. We are going back to Pakistan now. We would want to come back for the next trade fair in India," says Mohammad Irfan, a Pakistani trader.
"We are glad that Indian people love Punjabi products so much. We have some items left with us, and would like to sell them to local traders. I am sure the traders would love to buy them," says Sayeed Mohammed, another trader from Pakistan.
"I have applied to extend my visa to stay in India, and would like to roam around the country. I am sure that people in states like Gujarat, Rajasthan and Maharashtra would also like Pakistani products. Traders in Amritsar have already fixed a deal with us to import Pakistani cloth from us," says Zeb Imran, yet another Pakistani trader.
Delegations from the Sargodha Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI), Pakistan, headed by Zia Amin Sheikh, and the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Amritsar, India, led by RS Sachdeva, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to improve trade relations between the two countries.
