Turkish HVAC&R Exporters Association (ISIB) attended HVAC Expo Fair which took place on 13-15 February 2019 in Karachi, Pakistan. Turkish companies were the center of attention throughout HVAC Expo, which is alternately organized in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad every year.
ISIB has quite a busy fair schedule this year to accomplish its overarching objective to increase sectoral exports and to ensure Turkish HVAC&R sector is more powerful and competitive in global markets. As part of thiss busy agenda, ISIB organized the participation of national delegation to Pakistan HVAC Expo. 11 Turkish firms attended the fair, where ISIB had an info booth to advertise and promote Turkish HVAC&R sector.
Zeki Poyraz and Metin Duruk, Vice Presidents of ISIB Board of Directors, attended the opening ceremony of the fair together with representatives of the sector and held various meetings with high-level representatives of Pakistani HVAC&R Sector. A day before the fair started, ISIB officials also had lunch with Mr. Tolga Uçak, Karachi Consul General, to discuss further steps to boost trade between Turkey and Pakistan in the long run as well as the Free Trade Agreement between Turkey and Pakistan that is expected to be completed soon. The meeting also provided a chance for ISIB officials to have talks with sectoral representatives from the USA, the UAE, Lebanon, Egypt and Pakistan.
Opinions of the Turkish Companies that Attended the Fair:
Bahçıvan Elektrik Motor San.Tic. Ltd. Şti. / Bilal Bahçıvan
Turkish HVAC&R Exporters have great opportunities in Pakistan. They want tyo buy products from Turkey instead of India. They could get EU-standard products from Turkey at competitive prices. The fair is also very compact. We are very pleased with the visits to our company.

Erbay Soğutma Isıtma San. Ve Tic. Ltd. Şti. / Faruk Kömürcü
The Free Trade Agreement between Turkey and Pakistan should be signed as soon as possible. Lowered tax rates will increase our ability to compete. The fair is generally very lively. I believe that Turkish companies will increase their potential in the region. I also believe that ISIB’s organization of the participation of a national delegation was also a success. I strongly recommend Turkish companies to take part in similar organizations in the future.
Friterm A.Ş / Serdar Tümen
We have had many customers visiting our company at the 27th Pakistan HVAC Fair. We had a chance to meet and exchange opinions with buyers, contractors, consultants and associations. Consequently, the fair was very beneficial in terms of helping us to establish new business contacts, which shows our decision to attend the fair was right. We are looking forward to advance our cooperation and attend the fair to meet our partners to reach our objectives.
General Filter Havak Filtre San. Ve Tic. A.Ş / Serkan Mutcalı
I felt a positive approach towards Turkish companies in Pakistan. Our potential will increase even more once the free trade agreement between the two countries is signed. ISIB’s initiative to organize a national participation also contributed to our presence in the fair. It was to our advantage to attend the fair under the leadership of our union.
