Sub: Inviting participation at  Cairo Fashion & Tex fair from 8th - 10th March 2018, Cairo, Egypt

Dear Member,

We are pleased  to inform you that Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council with the support of other Textile EPCs  proposes to organize India Pavilion in  Cairo Fashion & Tex fair from 8th - 10th March 2018 at Cairo International Convention Center (CICC), Cairo, Egypt.

Pyramids International has been organizing Cairo Fashion and Tex since 1993. The event is held twice a year, in March (Summer/Spring) and September (Winter/Autumn.) It is held under the auspices of Ministry of Industry and Commerce and all the industrial chambers.

Reasons to exhibit in Cairo Fashion &Tex:

1) Egyptian textile & fashion industry play an extremely central role in the national economy.

2) In addition to the Free Trade Agreements with European Union, COMESA and Arab World, Egypt’s qualifying industrial zone (QIZ) agreement with the United States gives local manufacturers both tariff and quota-free to the US market.

3) Egypt has a strong competitive advantage with its well-known cotton and young, skilled labor force.

4) Egypt’s commercial ports and strategic location allow all the companies to access Asia, Africa and Europe easily.
