The Sectoral Trade Delegation program took place on 22-26 October 2017 with participation of 13 Turkish companies namely AFS, Aldag, Arcelik, CVS Air, Dogu Iklimlendirme, Erbay, Frigo Mekanik, Friterm, General Filter HAVAK, Sarbuz, Ulpatek, Untes and Vatbuz.

The program was also honoured by the participation of Mr. Mustafa Onat, Ambassador of Turkish Republic to Karachi; Mr. Murat Mustu, Trade Consultant; Mr. A. Metin Duruk, Vice President of ISIB; Mr. Farooq Mehboob, Director of ASHRAE Ral; Mr. Akbar Zaheer, President of ASHRAE Karachi Chapter; Mr. Sajjad Haider, President of Pakistan HVACR Society and Mr. Farooq Saeed, President of ASHRAE Lahore Chapter. Speaking at the Opening Ceremony of the event, the executives of Pakistani associations emphasized the friendly relations between Turkey and Pakistan, expressing their gratification for being a part of the organization. The speakers also expressed their wish to see Turkish firms investing in Pakistan and establishing partnerships in the long run.

With its big population and developing market, Pakistan promises a great potential for the HVACR sector. The export volume of the sector to Pakistan increased threefold in the last three years. However, the current potential clearly shows that a much higher increase in the export volume is a necessity.

Based on this necessity, ISIB organized participation of a national delegation in the HVACR fairs held in Karachi and Lahore in the past two years. Many Turkish firms were thus provided with an opportunity to present their work in these fairs. ISIB will also attend the HVACR Expo fair to be held in Islamabad in 2018.
