Bangladeshi RMG firms set up liaison offices in Hong Kong
Jul '11
Over 20 readymade garment (RMG) producing firms from Bangladesh have set up liaison offices in Hong Kong to ensure swift and hassle-free execution of business operations.

Hong Kong's geographical proximity with China, the biggest supplier of apparels across the globe, is another reason for entrepreneurs from RMG industry setting up their offices in Hong Kong. It is because Bangladesh, to a greater extent, relies on Chinese textiles for undertaking production of garment items for exports.

The RMG manufacturers in Bangladesh have grasped that Hong Kong is an opportune meeting place for Western buyers, Bangladesh's RMG exporters and Chinese fabric producers. Also, establishing offices in overseas countries supports the supply chain management for smooth organization of the business.

In addition, representatives of several globally acclaimed apparel brands prefer to stay either in Hong Kong or in Singapore to support swift execution of business deals, rather than going to Dhaka as Hong Kong supports better business facilities compared to Dhaka.

Since Bangladesh is a sourcing country for garment trade, the three main factors that affect it are the products, shipment and ease. These and other essential services can be effortlessly availed by buyers in Hong Kong, which makes it a preferred destination for setting offices.

Bangladeshi citizens settled in Hong Kong or Chinese people are appointed to look after the offices set up by Bangladeshi firms in Hong Kong due to their knowledge of local language and also their know-how in executing business deals.

However, most of the offices are established by way of partnership initiatives to evade issues of asking and obtaining government approval.
