Japan could prove to be haven for RMG exporters

Japan, which is the third biggest importer of textiles and apparels after the US and the European Union could prove to be haven for Bangladeshi RMG exporters if it relaxes its “Rules of Origin” (RoO) criteria, say experts.

As of date, Chinese textile and clothing products dominate the Japanese market with a mind boggling share of nearly 85 percent of the US $24 billion garment imports by Japan. On the other hand Bangladesh could export clothing worth only $74 million in the previous fiscal.

Experts aver that Bangladeshi share can climb up to nearly $2 billion if the Japanese government relaxed RoO criteria and with effective marketing campaigns and diplomatic initiatives conducted from the Bangladeshi side.

They add by saying that Bangladeshi RMG exporters should take advantage of the “Least Developed Country” (LDC) status, under the WTO charter, which allows duty free exports and try to break the stronghold of the Chinese in the Japanese markets.

Advantage should also be taken of the fact that Chinese goods are becoming less competitive in the overseas markets due to rising wages and high operational costs, due to which Japanese importers are looking for other reliable exporters, they conclude by saying.
