Talking about the session, the Head of Alibaba.com Pakistan Song Song said: “Pakistan is one of Alibaba.com’s most important supplier markets given its geographical advantage, skilled labor force and budding entrepreneurial SMEs looking to export. In spite of our progress in Pakistan, there is still room for more high-quality suppliers to start their export journey beyond Sialkot and including Karachi.

We encourage you to grow beyond your home market and get discovered by more than 40 million strong global online buyer community on Alibaba.com. As an increasing number of global buyers are turning online to fulfil their sourcing needs, and suppliers around the world are also expanding into the online realm, now is the time for our friends in Karachi to seriously consider the online business path as well. Let’s make the world smaller and your business bigger together.”

In collaboration with Alibaba.com, the Deputy Director of TDAP Haider Zamin made a public statement, “Through collaboration with Alibaba.com, we look forward to draft a holistic export policy that not only promotes the export industry but also ensures collective good with our local as well as international stakeholders.

Through this joint venture with Alibaba.com, e-commerce industry is to be embraced as the untapped market in Pakistan that will foster the export culture in digital space and will eventually increase the foreign investment inflow across the region.”
