Textech expo ends on a successful note

Jul '08
The 9th Textech International Expo 2008 concluded successfully on June 29 with about 20,000 visitors making a presence at the largest exhibition for textile and garments machinery ever held in Bangladesh.

This four day expo was held simultaneously with the 2nd Dhaka International Fabric Show (DIFS), 6th Machinexpo' 08 and 2nd Dye+Chem Expo' 08.

More than 250 companies from across 15 countries participated in the event and gave an immense impetus to the garment and knitwear industry which forms the driving force of the country's economy.

The fair opened up opportunity even for the foreign visitors who could ink a deal with local agents for marketing their company's products.

However, a good amount of cheap Chinese machineries have flooded the local markets in the past few years and this has aroused concern among domestic manufacturers about the quality and durability of these goods.

Besides, the seemingly low price of Chinese machines poses a threat of degradation in the quality of textile products.

Despite the fact that the market for apparel and textiles is in its buoyant phase, local exhibitors did not seem optimistic about manufacturing the required machineries in Bangladesh in the future.

Indian and Chinese companies made a huge presence at the textech Expo which could be perceived at the Dhaka International Fabric Show 2008.
