RMG exporters seek quota-free exports to India
Oct '10
Discussions were held by the Commerce Ministry of Bangladesh along with India, over the issue of withdrawal of export quota on its locally manufactured readymade garments, as the export of these garments to India experienced a rise in the current times.

In 2008, India had permitted a levy-free garment export quota of 8 million pieces from Bangladesh per annum, under a trade promotion proposal.

The domestic RMG exporters have used the entire export quota allocated for the year 2010 by the month of July only, due to the high demand from the Indian customers. RMG exporters from Bangladesh had exported 57,25,475 pieces of garments to India during this year.

The Commerce Ministry has requested its Indian counterpart to remove the export restriction on garments produced in Bangladesh.

Due to the improvement in the mutual relations with India, there has been a rise in the levy-free export of garments to India, in the current year.

The Ministry further expected that India would positively accept the proposal for the removal of the quota on apparel exports to the Indian market. This will promote the bilateral trade relations between both the countries.

The country's garment exports to India rose from US $10.93 million in the financial year 2008-09 to $12.54 million in the last financial year 2009-10. This shows an increase of about 13 percent in the country's apparel exports.
