Exhibitors from 10 countries participated at the two-day “Bangladesh Denim Expo”, held in Dhaka on November 11-12, 2014, to promote Bangladesh to the global market and share knowledge with global producers to get acquainted with latest technologies.

The program was jointly inaugurated by the Netherlands ambassador, Garben Jong and president of BGMEA, Atiqul Islam. Bangladesh commerce minister, Tofael Ahmed too visited the fair on 11th evening.

A total of 10 countries, including Bangladesh, USA, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, Italy, China, Taiwan, India and Pakistan participated in the expo, which was organised by Denim Expert Limited, a domestic denim producer.

Some of the exhibitors included Dystar Singapore, Envoy Textiles, Vicunha Europe, Kassim Textiles, Partex Denim, Square Denims, Beximco Textiles and Chittagong Denim Mills Ltd.

Three separate seminars ‘Advanced Denim’, ‘How Bangladesh needs to position itself in order to meet global competition in the textile area’, and ‘Trend forecast 2015/16 including denim fabrics and finishes’ were held concurrently with the expo.

MD at Denim Expert, Mostafiz Uddin said, “This expo is a non-profit initiative, and we are hopeful that it will promote Bangladesh’s denim industry in the international market.”

“Our aim is to bring foreign experts here and to enrich our industry to know about the latest global trends and technologies, said Engr MS Hasan, director at Partex Group.

Bangladesh is the second largest global denim products exporter to European markets, while holding the third largest position in the US market.

Bangladesh exports denim products worth around US$ 600 million per annum and produces around 20 million yards per month, which meets just 40 per cent of total demand, while the rest has to be imported from other countries. (AR)
