Several Chinese delegates have visited Bangladesh in recent past in order to explore the potential of readymade garment (RMG) sector in the country.

Speaking to fibre2fashion, Mr. Md. Shafiul Islam, president of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), said, “Several groups and chambers representing Chinese textile and apparel sector have visited Bangladesh in the recent past.”

“In fact, a team of delegates from a Chinese chamber of commerce visited us earlier this week and these teams are trying to explore the potential of Bangladesh garment sector,” he adds.

According to him, Bangladesh is the most important destination for apparel buyers from global market. “Bangladesh has the history of manufacturing quality products, delivering the goods on time and a committed entrepreneurship,” he mentions.

Talking about the strength of Bangladesh clothing sector, he says, “Though there are several problems such as shortage of gas, electricity and infrastructure, manpower is our greatest strength.”

“We have a vibrant population with 76 percent of the people being below 40 years of age and this demography is the key for our success,” he continues.
