Dubai Textile City Company SetupThe USD 4 billion plus Dubai Textile Mart, which sits at the center of a 1.4 billion booming consumer market extending from the CIS to Africa and the Indian subcontinent, has emerged as one of the most modern and profitable trading points in this region's commercial map. Hands held by the Textile Merchants Group (TEXMAS), the apex body in the UAE textile merchants, which was established in 1990, the trade has now earned the reputation of being run by some of the most professionally motivated and trusted merchants in the country. The formation of TEXMAS at the beginning of the last decade was itself a landmark development for the textile trade in the UAE.
