Highlighting the journey of My Karachi exhibition, Chairman Businessmen Group and former President KCCI, Siraj Kassam Teli recalled that during his tenure as President KCCI in 2004, he felt there was a need to clarify the negative perception about Karachi city, which mainly emerged due to negative projection by the media, particularly the western media.
He said that My Karachi Exhibition keeps on improving every year thanks to all the Former Presidents of Karachi Chamber who made untiring efforts with a focus on further improving this exhibition as compared to previous ones. Consequently, this exhibition has become one of the biggest events of the city and has expanded from three halls to all six halls of Karachi Expo Centre.
KCCI has been regularly organizing this exhibition without any commercial objective but with a vision to promote the positive image of Karachi and the tag line of ‘Made in Pakistan’ worldwide, he added. Siraj Teli also appreciated the support extended by Sindh government, Governor Sindh and Trade Development Authority of Pakistan in making this event successful.
He was of the view that despite internal and external problems confronting the economy, the business community remains steadfast to face the challenges and remove obstacles impeding the pace of commercial and industrial activities.
At My Karachi – Oasis of Harmony Exhibition, domestic as well as foreign businesses will once again be participating with a view to synchronize their trades. KCCI is certainly playing a commendable role in safeguarding the interests of business community and assisting them in every way possible, he added.
President KCCI Iftikhar Ahmed Vohra said that My Karachi exhibition 2015 will provide an excellent chance to explore true trade potential of Karachi in particular and Pakistan in general, which is home to natural beauty, traditions and cultural heritages.
“We have designed twelfth sequel of “My Karachi – Oasis of Harmony 2015” exhibition to expose the great potential of regional trade. We have also planned to organize an International Pavilion which also feature a dedicated Diplomatic Pavilion in which complimentary stalls have been provided to various Karachi-based Consulates ”, he added.
President KCCI, while welcoming the support extended by Government of Sindh and TDAP, hoped that this year’s exhibition also succeeds in achieving the desired objectives. Highlighting various arrangements and recreational facilities to be offered at My Karachi Exhibition, Chairman Special Committee for My Karachi Exhibition, Muhammad Idrees stated that more than 300 stalls showcasing Pakistani products and services have been established at this year’s exhibition which will be spread over all six halls of the Expo Centre.
All out efforts have been made to attract maximum number of visitors and foreign exhibitors at this event with a view to promote the positive image of Karachi city which is the economic and financial hub of the country.
