Bangladesh team to visit India on Nov 25 to boost apparel trade
Nov '11
A business delegation from Bangladesh, consisting of representatives of the country's readymade garment (RMG) industry, will be paying a two-day visit to India on November 25 and 26 to explore trade and business opportunities between the two countries.

Informing about the visit to fibre2fashion, Mr. Abdul Matlub Ahmed, President, India-Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IBCCI), said, “A delegation comprising of leading garment manufacturers of Bangladesh, will be visiting India on the 25th of this month and will return the next day. The team has representatives from both the woven and the knit garment sectors, who are also large importers of textiles.”

Talking about the purpose of the visit, Mr. Ahmed stated, “Apparel manufacturers would try to sell their products on the one hand, and try to import the fabrics on the other. For selling our garment items, we would mainly discuss with the chain store owners and the garment manufacturers of India, so they can reap the benefits of the recent decision of India to offer duty- and quota-free market access to 46 Bangladeshi products, mainly the textile and garment items.”

“Also on the agenda is to offer a new garments industrial park to Indian garment manufacturers, where they can join hands with their Bangladeshi counterparts and produce in Bangladesh with Indian materials, and bring the output back to India on duty free benefits,” he added.

The IBCCI President further said that they hope to meet the Indian Textiles Minister during their visit.

Talking about the anticipated outcome of the visit, he said, “We expect a good meeting with the chain store owners who could place orders and we are expecting a good growth in Bangladeshi apparel exports to India. We are also expecting that the Indian apparel industries would join hands with their Bangladeshi counterparts and benefit from the duty benefits given by India. It will help the textile sector and garment makers of both the nations.”
