Shifting of apparel orders from China to benefit Bangladesh
Sep '11
Shifting of apparel orders from China will benefit Bangladesh, as manufacturers in the leading Asian economy are now confronting some major issues such as high wages, increase in the prices of raw material, labour scarcity and high customs duty, experts said at a seminar held in Dhaka.

Apparel buyers are currently shifting their orders from China to Bangladesh and other countries of South Asia owing to low cost of labour, enhanced skills of their labour, better infrastructure facilities in the form of raw inputs and vendor base and low customs duty.

YKK Bangladesh Pte Ltd Marketing Coordinator for the Asia region, Edmond Fung, while speaking at “YKK Global Marketing Forum 2011” said that over next five years as sourcing from China would reduce by six to 11 percent every year, Bangladesh would gain advantage from the same and sourcing from it is likely to increase by six percent per annum.

Mr. Fung said China is now advancing towards high-end fashion and is likely to capture 30 percent of the international apparel sourcing market even after the shifting of orders away from China.

YKK Group, the biggest zipper producing firm across the globe, operates a large facility in Dhaka Export Processing Zone (DEPZ) with an annual production capacity of 350 to 500 million pieces.
