17th TextileAsia exhibition felt more like Chinese trade fair where you get to see too many Pakistani’s also it seemed as it was meant only for few selected machineries like stitching machines, embroidery machines etc of Chinese origin, beside these machines only couple of other machineries were seen at the exhibitions like air-compressors, generators, boilers etc.


All halls had their fair share of stitching machines, embroidery machines and their visitors were mainly families who didn’t seem much interested in machines but they were more interested in finished products.


Language barrier was evident too, with so many Chinese around hardly anyone could speak English or any local language like urdu.


Some of the major participants were also found missing and as for visitors one could hardly see any visitor or participant from Europe or from America, something was feeling as amiss.
