Ban on polythene bags will bring benefits to jute sector – BJMC

Jul '09
The probable ban on use of polythene bags in western countries is expected to change the fortunes of the depressed jute sector in Bangladesh. The next most convenient, cost-effective and eco-friendly alternative to the polythene bags is expected to be jute.

This can bring a ray of hope for one of the biggest jute producing country; Bangladesh. To understand the impact of the ban on polythene bags and the benefits it could bring to the jute sector, Fibre2fashion spoke to Mr Shamsul Haque, Marketing Director of Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation (BJMC).

According to Mr Haque, “The decision of ban on the use of polythene bags etc. will definitely encourage the users and end using countries for using jute goods. It will have positive good impact in the Jute Sector in Bangladesh because of it's cost effectiveness, eco-friendly and because of natural fibre products.

He said, “The current volume of jute bag exports from Bangladesh is about 477,000 metric tons (according to the source of FAO) and this volume varies from year to year according to the demand and supply situation in the international and domestic market as well”.

To conclude the interview we asked him to delve on as to how much the current crisis has affected the jute sector, to which he replied by saying, “Bangladesh has been affected due to the global economic recession and crisis as the demand of jute goods has come down from abroad and production has been cut based on present market situation”.
