Textiles and garments are among the industry sectors being discussed at a Pakistan-Turkey Business Forum meeting scheduled for 16 February in Karachi.

Organised by the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry, the summit centres round the visit of a Turkish trade and investment mission, and is aimed at setting up joint ventures between Pakistani companies and Turkish investors.

Iftikhar Ali Malik, president of FPCCI, has said that the Turkish mission's visit will open up new avenues of trade and economic co-operation, and that the interaction between Pakistani companies and the visiting Turkish delegation would result in a number of business and investment ventures.
