For being at par with the competitors in the textile manufacturing industry and to have bigger share in global apparel market, Bangladesh needs to increase usage of new technology, quoted Ms Evelyne Cholet, leader of French business delegation of textile machinery manufacturers.

Evelyne Cholet, who also is the Secretary General of French Textile Machinery Manufacturers Association (UCMTF) and further added that the country was one of the biggest clothing manufacturers in the world and could perform better if the apparel manufacturers adopted the latest technology.

Evelyne was speaking at the luncheon meeting organized by Bangladesh Chamber for Commerce & Industry (CCIFB) in Dhaka. She added that usage of better technology ensures improved and increased production as well as reduces maintenance charges.

French textile machinery makers are looking to increase market shares and exports in Bangladesh as local RMG industry is as similar as that of developed countries in terms of skill and knowledge, she informed.

For the fine fabric weaving, finishing and spinning, Bangladesh textile industry can also adopt French technologies. French equipments can also be used for recycling textile wastes, said Cholet.

Furthermore she added that, there are 39 textile equipment makers in her association exporting machinery to European and Asian Countries worth around $1.4 billion.

Laurent Estrade, trade commissioner of the economic department at the French embassy informed that the French Business Delegation toured Bangladesh to get introduced to the textile mills, garment industry and the College of Textile Engineering and Technology of the country.

This tour was also aimed at introducing new range of French machinery and technology to the expected partners in Bangladesh. Laurent also said that a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with College of Textile Engineering and Technology has also been prepared.

This MoU is to help the students to gain technical know-how. Under MoU, the UCMTF will offer technical and educational assistances and provide them with the latest machinery to get better practical knowledge, he added.
