A delegation of women entrepreneurs has left Islamabad for a 10-day visit to explore the European market and find ways to increase exports.
The delegation, led by Islamabad Women Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IWCCI) Founder-President Samina Fazil, will visit Hungary and Italy to explore the potential for unconventional exports and to meet business contacts.
Before leaving, the businesswomen expressed the hope they would be able to promote trade links and explore avenues for the export of made-in-Pakistan goods.
Europe accounts for 21.2% of Pakistan’s total exports and 16% of its total imports. Pakistan’s exports to Europe are dominated by textiles and clothing as well as leather products.
