KARACHI, May 31 (Gwadar Pro) - The 4th edition of TEXPO 2023 concluded on 28th of May at the Karachi Expo Centre attracted major Chinese e-commerce giants including Ali Baba, operators of Pakistan Pavilions on JD.com and Douyin, said Ghulam Qadir, Commercial Counsellor at the Pakistani Embassy in Beijing.
Ghulam Qadir told Gwadar Pro that the keenness shown by Chinese e-commerce platforms could benefit Pakistani exports in a big way.

He further said that the government of China is also facilitating Pakistan’s exports through online and offline pavilions. “We must strengthen Pakistani business industry with the help of Chinese investment in all fields, particularly industry relocation.”
“The presence of Chinese e-commerce giants at the TEXPO 2023 is expected to be a game changer for the textile industry in Pakistan. With the growing Chinese Pakistani Enterprises, it is anticipated that they will bring forth innovative ideas and strategies to revolutionize the e-Commerce sector in Pakistan,” he added.
Ghulam Qadir said that TEXPO 2023 will open up new opportunities for both Chinese and Pakistani businesses. It will also give a major boost to Pakistan's e-commerce industry, which is currently dominated by international players. With this event, Pakistanis can look forward to more competitive prices, better quality products, and improved customer services.
