General Manager of China Operations Keywin Trading Ltd, Sajjad Mazahir told China Economic Net (CEN) that China’s increasing demand for Pakistan cotton textiles is because the country’s industry balances itself with both exports and local downstream orders.

He said that a few years back, Pakistan’s textile products were in demand only for exports but now it has taken a good market share in China’s domestic market, too.

Currently, he said that Pakistan’s supplies include cotton, cotton yarns, and Griege fabric. They are preferred by many customers due to their competitive prices and quality.
