SIALKOT: Sialkot Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) has urged the Sialkot exporters to focus on the diversification of the traditional to non-traditional export items and explore new international trade markets, a statement said.
Addressing a meeting of the Sialkot business community, SCCI newly-elected President Ghulam Mustafa Chaudhry said that there is no doubt that the trendy Sialkot exporters have a great potential to capture the international trade and export markets through exporting their best quality traditional and non-traditional items.
