For the ninth time, Tajikistan showcases its cotton yarn to a wide range of international buyers at the International Istanbul Yarn Fair, one of the biggest yarn fairs in the world, to be held on 27-29 February 2020 in the Turkish business capital.
Five Tajik spinning companies – “Faizi Istiqlol”, “HIMA-Textile”, “Resandai Kurghonteppa”, “Spitamen Textiles”, and “Vahdat” continue a good tradition of the Tajikistan participation at this leading specialized exhibition.
The International Istanbul Yarn Fair is a meeting point for about 8,000 visitors from around 80 countries. The fair brings together industry leaders, who shape the international yarn market. Named as “the heart of yarn industry in Eurasia”, the exhibition displays different types of yarn, fiber, textile machinery, and much more. The fair is an excellent opportunity for the Tajik spinning companies to show and promote their products to a wide range of buyers (sales agents, wholesalers and retailers) from Turkey and other countries.
Tajik participants believe that participation at this fair will open new opportunities for them. According to Mr. Sodiqjon Rustami, the Deputy Minister of Industry and New Technologies of Tajikistan: “The International Istanbul Yarn Fair is an ideal event for Tajik spinning companies to meet leading textile producers from the region, empower own brands in the regional market, establish new contacts with the manufacturers, suppliers, importers and traders, get acquainted with trends, demands and expectations of the market, as well as to explore new products and innovations”.
Preparation for and participation in the International Istanbul Yarn Fair is made possible thanks to the Government of Switzerland through the ITC’s Global Textiles and Clothing Programme and in close cooperation with the project of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in Tajikistan “Towards Rural Inclusive Growth and Economic Resilience” (TRIGGER II). The project is implemented on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The delegation of five Tajik producers will be guided throughout the fair by representatives of the Ministry of Industry and New Technologies of Tajikistan, and ITC local partner consulting companies – “ACT Development Group” and “Business Consulting Group”. ITC believes that participation in international trade fairs provides good opportunities for project beneficiary companies to be competitive in regional markets through the establishment of new business contacts, obtaining information on new modern machinery, and learning more about global market requirements.
