A 14-strong delegation of Pakistan's leading textile manufacturers and exporters is to meet with textile importers and retail chains in the UK and Spain in an attempt to secure a greater share of the EU market. 

According to a senior official in the Export Promotion Bureau, the delegation, led by EPB vice chairman Ejaz Qureshi, will remain in the UK until January 16, before moving on to Spain.
 
In a trip to the UK last year, the EPB chairman managed to persuade some of Britain's top retail chains to display and sell Pakistani products at their stores.
