Tajikistan continues the tradition of visiting the International Yarn and Fiber Fair in Istanbul, one of the largest yarn fairs in the world, which will be held June 1-3 in the business capital of Turkey.
Six companies from Tajikistan: Vahdat Textile (Dushanbe, Kulyab, Yavan), Kosibon (Khujand), Leader (Khujand), Nohid (Istaravshan), Rakhimov A.A. (Khujand) and Resandai Kurgonteppa (Bohtar) went to Istanbul to learn about new trends, purchase necessary raw materials such as blended yarns and accessories, and establish new business contacts.
Over 10,000 visitors from around 80 countries visit the Istanbul International Yarn and Fiber Fair every year, which brings together industry leaders who shape the international yarn market in one place.
Referred to as “the heart of the yarn industry in Eurasia”, the exhibition showcases hundreds of yarns, from cotton to wool, from elastane to acrylic, from silk to viscose, and more.
The exhibition will provide Tajik manufacturers with an excellent opportunity to show and promote their products to a wide range of consumers, primarily wholesalers and retailers from Turkey, which is one of the main export markets for Tajik yarn and other countries.
Since 2012, 17 companies from Tajikistan, some up to eight times, have participated in this major specialized industry event in the region.
Abdurauf Pulotov, Deputy Head of the Light Industry Department of the Ministry of Industry and New Technologies of the Republic of Tajikistan, who is part of the Tajik delegation, said:
“The International Yarn and Fiber Fair in Istanbul provides the spinning companies of Tajikistan with an ideal opportunity to meet with leading producers from the region, improve the recognition of their brands in the regional market, and establish contacts with manufacturers, suppliers, importers and sales representatives. Our companies will become familiar with the trends, requirements and expectations of the market, as well as discover new products and innovations.”
The Tajik delegation is confident that participation in the exhibition will open up new opportunities for them.
Bahodur Mengliev, management consultant at Vakhdat Textile, notes:
“We are taking part in this exhibition for the eighth time. Participation in previous exhibitions gave us the opportunity to sign contracts with foreign companies. This year we are participating as a guest and look forward to expanding business contacts, in particular, in the search for raw materials and components for the production of our finished products, as well as expanding our presence in regional markets.”
To enhance the capacity of Tajik textile and clothing enterprises in product development and marketing, ITC and GIZ are helping companies prepare for and participate in international trade fairs.
Participation in international exhibitions will provide an excellent opportunity for companies to become competitive in regional markets by establishing new business contacts, obtaining information about trends in the sector, as well as learning more about the requirements of the global market.
The visit to the exhibition in Istanbul was made possible thanks to the assistance of the Government of Switzerland within the framework of the ITC Global Textile and Apparel Program and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in Tajikistan – “Integrated Rural Development Project / Promoting Inclusive Rural Economic Growth for the Welfare of the Population (IRDP / TRIGGER )”, funded jointly by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). ITC’s local partners, ACT Development Group and Business Consulting Group, helped Tajik companies prepare for the visit to the exhibition and accompany the delegation during the mission.
